James Maddison says the start to Leicester City’s Europa League campaign “couldn’t have gone better”. The Foxes are joint top of Group G following wins in their first two matches, against Zorya Luhansk and AEK Athens. Brendan Rodgers’ side beat AEK 2-1 on Thursday night, with goals from Jamie Vardy and Hamza Choudhury.
James Maddison said “It’s a really good start to the group, We said prior to the game last week at home that we wanted to get off to a good start and we did in convincing fashion, a 3-0 win. Then we’ve come away to what is a tough place to come again and, watching the clips on the iPads from the analysts, we knew it was going to be a tough game. We started the game very well and that was important. We came out the blocks quite quickly, created a few chances and managed to see the game out, after they had a little rally in the second half. It’s a convincing start, two from two, it couldn’t have gone better. I got fouled a lot today, personally, and a few of the other lads did as well, but that’s what happens in Europe. You know, sometimes you don’t get those fouls where you would in the Premier League and vice versa. It’s just about getting up and carrying on, still wanting the ball, still showing that bravery to get on the ball, even when you get kicked, and I think we did that. We were excellent in midfield.”
