Anthony Knockaert: Enjoying life with Leicester
Leicester's French winger Anthony Knockaert insists he is loving playing in England.
The 20-year-old joined the Foxes this summer after moving from Guingamp - despite being linked with the likes of Montpellier and Newcastle.
As a youngster he had a trial with Leeds United, and since then he insists he dreamed of playing in England.
"During pre-season against Sunderland, it was wonderful. I have never played a match with so much speed in my life. It was amazing," he told L'Equipe.
"Around me there were a lot of people that told me it was a bad decision to sign at Leicester. But I know I couldn't leave the chance.
"Since I am teenager I have always dreamt about England. My objective is to make a name for myself in the Premier League one day, because it is the only league in the world where I want to play in once in my life.
"What I love in England, it is the passion around Football."
Knockaert scored his first goal in England earlier this week during Leicester's 4-2 Capital One Cup defeat to Burton Albion.
