Perez Tipped To Fail At Leicester

Last updated : 10 July 2019 By Footy Mad - Editor

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes Ayoze Perez will struggle at Leicester City following his move from Newcastle United.

Perez signed for the Foxes last week, joining on a deal worth around £30 million to become City's second signing of the summer transfer window.

Already with plenty of Premier League experience, the Spaniard will be hoping to hit the ground running at the King Power Stadium, but he may just struggle to meet expectations.


That's according to Tony Cascarino, who told talkSPORT: "The only trouble is he did really well at Newcastle during the second part of the season.

"Rondon played a big part in why he scored so many goals - he just took centre stage and scored some brilliant goals.

"I just think he's going to find it harder at Leicester because Vardy doesn't play anywhere near the same game as Rondon. Okay, they both like to run the channels and get into space.

"But I just think he's going to find it a little tougher to do what he did at Newcastle. I'm going [Perez will be a transfer] miss. Largely his career was in and out at Newcastle. Only near a time during last season did Perez show qualities that he does have. He can prove me wrong!"
