Following a productive pre-season, including an intense training camp in Évian-les-Bains and five friendlies, Justin is thrilled that the Premier League campaign is just over a week away.
“I hope it’s going to be a good atmosphere for a pre-season game, especially since it’s our first one at King Power Stadium,” he said this week.
I’m excited to get out there in front of the fans and show them what I can do. It’s definitely up there in terms of stadiums for me.James Justin
“I’m excited to get out there in front of the fans and show them what I can do. It’s definitely up there in terms of stadiums for me.
“I’ve played at a couple of the Premier League stadiums in the cup competitions for Luton, but I think it’s definitely at the top of the list for me.”
Justin is also expected Atalanta to be a unique challenge for the Foxes and suggested that Brendan Rodgers’ men will try and impose their own playing style on the game.
“Obviously, the game might be a little bit slower because Italian football is a little like that, but we’ll try and raise the intensity where we can to make it more like the Premier League,” he added.
“It’s all about preparing for that first game against Wolves. It just feels like yesterday when we we’re back in for pre-season and all the hard work, all the tactical things, it’s building up.
“There’s no limit on what we can do if we apply ourselves right on the pitch, stay together off it, and there’s no line in front of us.”
