Leicester City winger Issahaku Fatawu is this week featured in an interview with South African magazine Soccer Laduma.
The 19-year-old, who’s loaned to the club by Sporting, had a long and interesting conversation about the Lions, the Foxes and the Ghanian national team.
First speaking about his departure from the Lisbon side, Fatawu claimed that manager Ruben Amorim didn’t really have plans for him there, and that’s why he ended up at Leicester City last summer.
“Yeah, that’s what I mean. It’s about how he wants me to play in relation to how he wants the team to play. I think what he wants from me now is to go somewhere to play more minutes and get better,” Fatawu told Soccer Laduma.
“Yeah, Premier League is my dream league, so I’m hoping to play there and since arriving, Leicester has given me a different feeling. How the people here have been has given me more confidence to stay here. For me, I’d be happy to stay at Leicester because I know and believe in the team, that we will qualify for the Premier League, so I’ll be happy to stay here.”
Since joining Leicester City, Fatawu has had two goals and one assist in 16 appearances.
Sporting recently released a financial report with many details of their recent transfers. There, it was revealed that the Foxes paid €750k to sign the winger on a loan spell.
At the end of the season, Leicester City will have the chance to sign him permanently for €17m. That clause becomes obligatory in case of promotion to the Premier League.
