Daka happy to fight for place at Leicester

Patson Daka is happy competing with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho at Leicester City.

The Zambia forward scored in the 4-2 win over Manchester United on Saturday.

"It was amazing, it was like a dream come true for me," Daka said after his goal on the weekend. "I've been looking forward to this moment. The patience and the belief and the hard work has paid off. I'm looking forward to many more goals.

"I'm always so positive regardless of how many minutes I get. When I was being introduced, he (Rodgers) just told me to do what I do best, just to enjoy myself, and to try to help the team.

"The support has been amazing. I know my part in this team, I'm not concerned. I have to continue to work hard, and I am doing my best to settle as quickly as I can. I have not played many games, but I am not worried about it, I know there is a plan for me.

"Everyone is putting in their very best, and the competition is really great, especially in the frontline in the form of Vardy and Iheanacho. They keep encouraging me in training, and helping me. They have been playing in the Premier League for a long time, and training with them is great.

"I learn everyday, but not just from Jamie. We have great and different personalities in the team. Every day is a new learning day for me, I just try to take everything in."
