Leicester City news: Demarai Gray gives frank assessment of his progress
The young winger is away at the U21 Euros this summer with England and is determined to return to the King Power a better player
Demarai Gray admits he must improve, after conceding that his season for Leicester City was no more than “OK”.
The winger, who is preparing with England for the European Under-21 Championship, managed just one assist last season and four goals.
“It was just OK,” said Gray when asked to critique his own season. “I wanted to achieve more, but at the same time I did improve and learned things about different aspects of my game.
“My numbers – my goals and assists – need to improve. I might get a bit of criticism for that but I know it myself.
“I’m 22 and am still improving and I have a lot of improving to do. I know it will come.”
Despite his frank assessment of his own performances at club level, Gray can expect to play a key role in Aidy Boothroyd’s plans for this summer’s tournament in Italy and San Marino.
As one of the squad’s senior players, it will be the former Birmingham man’s final chance to help the under-21s claim an elusive major trophy.
“I have more responsibility now, but I like that,” he said.
“I’ll be helping the young lads who are coming through. They know what is involved but this tournament is different. It is a proper tournament – similar to what you see with the seniors, and a completely different ball game to the qualifiers and friendlies.
“One mistake, or moment of sloppiness, and it’s over, the Euros is gone. It’s big.
“France is the first game and they are probably a team that is on our level. I see that game as a final, to be honest.
“We need to win that game. There is no time to ease your way into this tournament.”
