Matt Fryatt: I saw plenty of changes at Leicester

Former Leicester City striker Matt Fryatt has spoken of his time with the Foxes.

The 31-year-old has recently announced his retirement from the game because of injury.

“I had just signed a contract at Walsall so I thought I would be there but then I got a call to say they had agreed a fee with Leicester," Fryatt, who is determined to stay in the game as a coach or scout, told the Leicester Mercury.

“I just remember the stadium. I was shown around the training ground and spoke to the staff, but then I was shown the stadium and I just thought 'wow. This is the next level.' It was completely different to Walsall, so I just wanted to sign.

“I did see some lows and highs at City. It is a really good club, and was back then too. The stadium, the facilities, the training ground and how they looked after you. The majority of the staff are still there now from when I was there. They do a great job and I was delighted for them when they had all the success. It is just a really good football club."
