Derby County midfielder Ben Davies says he loved working under former England manager and current Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Davies, who played under the Swede at Notts County, will be part of the high-flying Rams side who take on Eriksson's big-spending Foxes on Saturday.
"I cannot speak highly enough of him," Davies told BBC East Midlands Today.
"For someone like him - who has achieved so much - to come to Notts and be so down to earth was incredible."
Davies added: "The one word I would use to describe working with Sven would be a pleasure. He was a top man.
"I have been fortunate enough to work with the gaffer here [Nigel Clough] and with Sven.
"They are probably two of the nicest blokes you could have in football. You can't do anything but learn from them. Like the gaffer here, Sven is always there to help off the pitch as well."
