Leicester Regret For Akinbiyi

Leicester Regret For Akinbiyi

Ade Akinbiyi has said that he wished he hadn't signed for Leicester when he did.

The 31 year old has spoken on the eve of the clash between the two sides after spending two unhappy years at Filbert Street following his £5 million move from Wolves.

'Looking back I wished I'd stayed at Wolves for another year before I moved to Leicester. But I made the move and obviously it didn't work out for me.'

'I thought at the time that was a big fee for me, but everything was moving so fast for me and I had people around me who were just interested in the finance part and weren't looking after me.

'If you go to a club for that fee people will be expecting big things from you and so I had pressure on me all the time, and that affects your game.'

'If you let people affect you that can kill you and ruin your game. There was no way I was going to give up football because of what people were shouting out.

'I was just trying to focus on my game but you do reach a low point when every time you don't think you are going to score. I carried on but when you feel like you're trapped the only thing I needed was a move to get out of it.'

Akinbiyi has silenced his critics since moving to Burnley, scoring 12 times in 21 games.

'When you've got a manager who drums confidence into you week in and week out then it pays off, he's a keen manager and is young and ambitious. In the future he could be England manager if he keeps on doing what he's doing.

'Everyone sticks together here and we're all working hard under a good manager. We're aiming to get into the play-offs and would be an achievement for us.

'I don't think we have a big enough squad to push on from that though. But we're feeling confident and I'm enjoying my game now and want to keep on playing well.'
