Leicester midfielder Praet happy to be away from 'boring' Serie A

Leicester City midfielder Dennis Praet is happy to have left behind “boring" training sessions in Italy.

The £18m summer signing from Sampdoria is pleased with the intensity at City's Belvoir Drive headquarters and likes working under Brendan Rodgers.

“In Italy it is more tactical and also a bit more boring and longer," he said.

“[Rodgers] is a good coach and has a warm personality.

"He also talks a lot with the players, something that did not happen much in Italy. You can compare him a bit with [Belgium manager] Roberto Martinez.
