An Enjoyable Session, Says James

Matty James spoke to LCFC TV after Leicester City completed their first training session in Marbella.

“I think it’s just going to be nice to be together with the lads in a different environment. Like I say, it’s a nice area and hopefully we’ll have a good week.

“Tomorrow (Wednesday) and the day after will be the two most difficult days of the week. It’s a normal week in a different environment.

“We’re just going to enjoy it and do our normal work. I’m sure the gaffer will work on certain things ready for the game on Sunday.”

The weather is quite nice and it’s a change of scenery for us. We’ve had a good session there with a lot of fun, so it’s good to be somewhere different.
