Ahmed Musa has admitted that the intensity of pre-season training at Leicester City caught him by surprise, but says that he is slowly "getting used to life" with his new side.
The 23-year-old completed a club-record £16.5m switch to the Foxes last week, bringing an end to his four-year spell with Russian giants CSKA Moscow.
Musa is now adapting to his new surroundings and claims that the fast-tempo nature of training sessions could be the secret behind the Foxes' shock title success last season.
"When I started my first session I was thinking, 'wow'!". I have never seen that in Russia - but now I am getting used to it," he is quoted as saying by The Express. "The intensity here is quite different to Russia.
"Here it is a little bit harder; in Russia they are more laid back. That is the most difficult thing but that is the secret behind Leicester's success.
"Everyone is focused and everyone is happy with each other. That's the biggest secret - if you're all happy with each other you can achieve a lot."
