Sven-Goran Eriksson’s training regime has give Leicester City a huge boost says Andy King

By LCFC | November 20, 2010

Andy King believes new manager Sven-Goran Eriksson's training techniques are the reason for Leicester City's upsurge in form recently.

The Swede and his assistant, Derek Fazackerley, place the emphasis on short, sharp, high-intensity training with quick, one-touch passing, and King said the players were really enjoying the approach.

King, who has captained the side this season, said confidence had increased because of the training and they had been able to take that on to the playing field.

"Everyone's confidence is sky-high and the training has been good, at a high tempo," he said.

"I think that is what has been getting everyone up for the games, and that is why the performances have turned and everyone is up for it at the moment.

"Sven has been outstanding. The respect he has from the lads is there because of everything he has achieved during his career and the players he has managed.

"The training is a lot sharper than it was before and I think that is starting to show in the performances.

"We are moving the ball quickly and everyone is looking fit and strong and we are really getting on top of games.

"Faz is a no-nonsense sort of man. His coaching is very good and they are a good combination."

King is City's top scorer this season with seven goals from midfield, and he will be looking to add to that tally this afternoon at Bristol City by beating Robins keeper David James.

However, King is quick to acknowledge the contribution of his team-mates for his goal-scoring form.

"The system we are using lets me play further forward, but whatever system we use I do try to get forward as much as I can," he said.

"It is credit to the players around me that they can see the passes. It is all right making the run but, if you don't have the right players around you who can't see it, there is no point.

"The fact that David James is in goal is good for those of us who grew up watching him on the television.

"If I get a chance to put one past him I will take it, so I can say I have scored against David James."
