Their fairy tale story swept through the world of football as the 5000/1 Premier League champions and now even the European elite are hoping to avoid Leicester City in the Champions League
Despite being the current holders of the Champions League and the club winning the competition a record eleven times, Zidane said:
“They keep achieving what they are told they can’t achieve.
“Many thought they could not turnaround the defeat against Sevilla — and they did."
“Whatever club Leicester face, they (Leicester) won’t be favourites. And with that pressure off them and on the other team, anything can happen.
The Frenchmen also credited the fighting spirit within the Leicester side which is a trait no team can tactically prepare for. He added,
“In the last eight, you are going to be in for two tough games. It’s the stage of the competition where everybody starts to believe and to dream they can win it.”
