16-year-old Romanian Alex Pascanu discusses his time at Leicester City

Leicester City

The talented Romanian youth international is hopeful the first-team can win the Premier League title.

Leicester City are currently on the path to pull off one of the biggest Premier League upsets of all time as they sit top of the Premier League table the first week of February.

The Foxes have simply not suffered the dip in form everyone expected to arrive at some point and instead go from strength to strength in their unlikely title tilt.

The club as a whole is in a strong position and one of their most talented young individuals is a little-known Romanian called Alex Pascanu.

The 16-year-old moved to the UK at the age of four and has been on the books at Leicester from the age of eight. He has played for Romania under-16s and looks a good prospect for the future.

He has been speaking to Sport in Romania about his career in England so far:

"My daily routine varies from day to day. Two days a week I have school in the morning and afternoon workouts, workouts only two other days, I only school Wednesday and Saturday matches.

"Leicester has surprised everyone this season because of team unity. We continue to dream that we can finish as high.

"I trained with the first team and I saw how much you have to work to get to play at that level."

He was also asked if he would ever return to play football in Romania, to which he said no, but he confirmed his desire to represent Romania at international level.

Right now Leicester have plenty of reasons to be cheerful, but in the years to come they might just get to enjoy seeing Pascanu in action.
