Filip Benković spoke to LCFC TV after joining the Foxes on deadline day.
“The ambitions of Leicester City are so big. I like the Club very much and I think it’s a very good step for me to the next level. I’m very happy to be here.
“On the pitch, I do my best. I fight for the Club and that’s all I can promise to do. The fans will see what I have and fully hope I will do a good job.”
Benković has spent a decade at boyhood club Dinamo Zagreb, where he lifted the Croatian cup twice, as well as a league title.
“This is my first step and it’s my first move to another club because I was at the same club for all of my life,” he said.
Filip Benković has joined the Foxes from Croatian top flight side Dinamo Zagreb.
“I know it’s a big difference from our league and the Premier League, which is the best league in the world. I believe in myself and I believe I’ll help the team.
“When I came here, I heard a lot of good [talk] about the Club and about the players. I watched a lot of games and these are good players.
“They have so much experience from playing at a high level for all these years. I’m very happy to learn from them in training. I’m very happy.”
Benković has already got a good understanding of City and their recent top-flight success having followed the Premier League closely over the years.
I have very [big] ambitions and I think the Club have very big ambitions. I think that we can do well together. As a team, we can do some big things.Filip BenkovićLCFC TV
“I’ve watched a lot [of Premier League games],” added the defender. “This is the league I like the most.
“I like this kind of football and I’ve followed Leicester a lot. I’ve seen so many top games. They’re very good and they have such a good team.
