Leicester City’s summer signing Luis Hernandez has been talking about what it’s like to play under Claudio Ranieri and to play alongside Vardy and Mahrez.
Leicester City acquired the Spaniard’s services this summer after signing Luis Hernandez on a free transfer from Sporting Gijon.
Despite working under Ranieri for just a matter of months, Hernandez has praised Claudio saying that he’s a fantastic man-manager.
Speaking to the media, Hernandez said:
"“He is a very experienced coach who knows how to handle the players. At work, in day-to-day management, he is superb and that is crucial.”"
"“He knows how to handle times of pressure. We must compete in every game and that’s what he conveys. I can play both positions (Centre-back and right-back), I have no preferences and I am always available to Ranieri. He makes the decision.”"
"“I hope to continue taking minutes. I’ll train 100 per cent and want to continue taking advantage of every opportunity.”"
The 27 year old went on to talk about who he believes the key men for Leicester are.
Whilst it’s clear to fans of Leicester, it’s interesting to hear who a new team-mate believes is key to their success.
Luis believes that Danny Drinkwater, Jamie Vardy and PFA Player of The Year Riyad Mahrez are all key to Leicester City’s success in all competitions.

"“Jamie Vardy has been champion of the Premier League, but he is very humble. He has not lost his ambition.”"
"“Riyad Mahrez is among the three most talented players in the Premier League. I enjoy watching him every day.”"
"“And Danny Drinkwater dictates our rhythm and understands when to counter-attack and when to hold. He is key.”"
A notable aspect of Hernandez’s play when featuring as a right-back for Leicester are his long throw-ins.
The Spaniard does not shy away from comments on his throw-ins and during his interview he speaks at length about the impact that this can cause on a game.
As he mentions, it was a long throw-in which created Leicester’s first ever goal in Champions League football as Marc Albrighton thumped the ball home for the first of three in Leicester’s 3 – 0 away win in Brugge.
"“(The long throw) is an important weapon. It can do lots of damage, like Marc Albrighton’s goal against Brugge.”"
"“Our big players in these situations will generate danger. The throw-ins will give us a lot of goals.”"
"“Christian Fuchs always tells me we have to do a video to see who throws longer and more accurately.”"
