Ghana winger Abdul Fatawu says the chance to try and help get Leicester City back to the Premier League was a career opportunity he had to take.
The 19-year-old joined the Foxes on loan from Sporting Lisbon a day before the summer transfer window shut. He has already played in the Champions League, but sees the move to England’s second tier as “an achievement”.
“Their journey is to go back to the Premier League. That’s a big opportunity for me to help,” he said. “For me [joining] Leicester is a big achievement. When I heard they were interested, I was so happy because it’s been my dream to play in England.”
The Ghana international has so far featured seven times for Enzo Maresca’s side, and has started in Leicester’s past three Championship games. The Foxes have won nine of their 10 Championship games this season to top the table.
