Marc Albrighton has backed his new Leicester City teammate Adrien Silva to succeed at the King Power stadium, and claimed the Portuguese midfielder's debut was 'worth the wait' after a late registration during the summer meant the player could not officially join the Foxes until 2018.
The 28-year-old made his first appearance for Leicester in the win over Huddersfield, as he was used as a late substitute within the game and Albrighton is convinced that there is more to come from the new star.
"He has obviously got the quality in his feet and that is why we signed him, for his technical ability, it is second to none." Albrighton said as quoted by ESPN
"He will be eager to prove, as he has done to the lads in training, to everyone that he can do the other side and cope with the English game.".
Silva's next chance to make his first start for Leicester comes against League One Fleetwood in the FA Cup on January 6.
