The Spanish forward, who joined from Newcastle United this summer, delivered an impressive 45-minute performance at Glanford Park.

As Brendan Rodgers continues to build the football fitness of his squad, Pérez is excited to continue working hard with the 2019/20 season on the horizon.

"It’s a great feeling to be able to play my first game for Leicester, and obviously a goal it makes it even better," the 25-year-old forward told LCFC TV.

"Since the first day it has been great from me in terms of linking up with the guys. They have been very close to me and helping me out a lot.

Pérez Looking For More Goals

Ayoze Pérez speaks to LCFC TV after he scored the only goal of the game against Scunthorpe United in the Foxes' first game of pre-season.

"It’s been great and this is just the start I guess. This is really important for those new signings, especially for me.

"I felt really well, speaking a little bit with the guys trying to get to know each other a bit more. That makes us a bit closer as a family.

"Obviously then you see that on the pitch as well so that’s good, it was a good experience."

Pérez has also enjoyed being handed a licence to attack for the Foxes, which was evident in north Lincolnshire on Tuesday.

Goal: Scunthorpe United 0 Leicester City 1

New signing Ayoze Pérez nets for Leicester City in a 1-0 pre-season friendly victory over Scunthorpe United on Tuesday.

The former Tenerife man linked up well with Ricardo Pereira on the right flank and is determined to continue working on his game over the next month.

"I get into the box as much as I can, I like to be in the box," he continued. "That’s always my feeling. I’m used to playing a lot as a striker. I think that’s a part of me now.

"To get into the box and find those spaces and good positions to get goals... hopefully [there's] more to come. I’m very happy and proud of myself to score the first.

"It’s been a couple of hard weeks, training hard but it’s part of the process. We have to keep going, keep pushing and make sure we are ready for the first game."
