“The atmosphere in the stadium when the game is on, and how in-tune the fans are with what’s going on in the game, both make you feel ‘wow’. After the game, the amount of fans that are outside wanting to see us and take pictures, which has been tough because of COVID, is incredible.

“The supporters really care. This is a special club.”

According to him, the Marek Gołębiewski-led are a good side who give Leicester a great challenge.

“Whenever you’re playing in Europe, you’re coming up against a good team,” he added. “Unfortunately, we lost to them over there, but we will be looking to use that experience to win our game here. In that game over there, they were very intense, they fought a lot and they made it difficult for us.

“We couldn’t get a victory out of the game, but hopefully this game will enable us to force ourselves on them, take the fight to them and show our true qualities.”

Leicester lost the first leg 1-0 at Stadion Wojska Polskiego in September.
