Zambian striker Patson Daka has said Leicester City needed badly the 4-1 emphatic win over Randers on Thursday evening to build confidence.
Daka spoke to Leicester website after the UEFA Europa Conference League Knockout Round Play-Off first leg against Randers.
“I think we all needed this, we as a team, the fans – we all needed this,” Daka told Leicester website.
“We have had tough weeks, and we needed something to give us more confidence and redemption. Tonight was really important for us to get a positive result.
“We created so many chances, but at the same time, we have to give credit to the [Randers] goalkeeper. He was brilliant; he made some really good saves.”
Daka scored the Foxes’ third goal joining Wilfred Ndidi, Harvey Barnes and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall on the scoresheet.
Daka now has nine goals for City in 23 appearances across all competitions, according to Leicester records.
The former Red Bull Salzburg striker has scored six goals in Europe, making him the Foxes leading goalscorer in European competition.
