Ghanaian winger Kamal Sowah has expressed satisfaction in his gradual progress at Leicester City after featuring in the two pre-season friendlies against Burton and Wycombe.
Sowah impressed after coming on in the second half of the 1-0 defeat to Wycombe on Wednesday night and remains eager for a role in the upcoming campaign.
The Right to Dream Academy graduate spent the last two seasons on loan in Belgium with OH Leuven, where he became a key player for the Jupiler Pro League side, but returns to Leicester to fight for a place in the first team.
“I’m feeling great, especially coming back to Leicester. It’s been a long time for me coming back here for me to get minutes with the first team,” he told LFC TV.
“It’s always a great thing being able to be on the pitch, getting 45 minutes under my belt. That’s always the feeling – after a long holiday, you’re always going to get back your fitness, really good fitness, so that’s really great for me to get it back.
“I think gradually, it has been great. Being together with my colleagues and everyone getting to know the players, for me, it’s been great out there.
“We’ve been working so hard because we’ve been we’ve been on a long holiday, so everyone is really working hard to come back to fitness. For me, it’s been great so far.”
Manager Brendan Rogers is keenly monitoring the right winger and could hand him the opportunity for a first competitive appearance when Leicester play Manchester City in the Community Shield on Saturday, August 7, 2021.
However, the Foxes play QPR and Villareal in their last two pre-season friendlies.
