Nathan Dyer discloses Claudio Ranieri's advice before his Leicester debut

Pre Kick Off

Nathan Dyer came off the bench at half-time during Leicester City's 3-2 victory over Aston Villa.

Nathan Dyer has told Leicester City's official website that Claudio Ranieri's advice to him before making his debut against Aston Villa was simply to play his own game.

Ranieri had a clear understanding of the impact that Dyer could have on the game, having seen him play on numerous occasions for Swansea City, and the winger says that he did not over-complicate matters. 

The Italian boss introduced Dyer off the bench at half-time during Leicester's match against Villa, and he helped to turn the game around - scoring a late winner to secure the Foxes all three points. 

“He said just to play my own game," Dyer revealed on the club's official website. "He’s seen me play before and he just wanted me to express myself and just get on with my own game. He likes to play with wingers, I was pleased with that and he has just let me play my game.

“He wants me to get involved with the goals and take my man on. With the pace that we’ve got and the attacking threat that we’ve got, we can cause teams problems."

Dyer has fallen out of favour at Swansea under Garry Monk, but he has already shown that he can make an impact at Premier League level. 

The 27-year-old's pace makes him a useful weapon for any side, and his quality was clear to see on his debut - as he sneaked past the Villa defence in the last minute to head home. 

The goal helped Leicester to their 10th win in 14 matches - a record which carries over from last season - and Dyer will have been delighted to settle in so quickly.

The lightning-quick wide-man will now be aiming to make his first start for the club in the not too distant future, and that outing could come this weekend, when the Foxes meet Stoke City.
