Former Leicester City star Anthony Knockaert has revealed some of the antics his former teammates got up to on team nights out. In an interview with French television station SFR Sport, Knockaert said that Marcin Wasilewski would break pint glasses with his teeth, which will no doubt enhance Wasileswki's reputation as a cult hero with the Foxes faithful.
One for Leicester fans... Anthony Knockaert says on nights out cult hero Marcin Wasilewski would break pint glasses with his teeth. #LCFChttps://t.co/xbcYdqTlHn
The Polish defender arrived in the East Midlands in 2013 from Anderlecht and made his debut against Derby in the League Cup. He established himself in the first team that season as Leicester were promoted to the Premier League as Championship champions.
Wasileswki's one and only goal for the Foxes came against Manchester United the following season but the arrival of Robert Huth in 2015 meant that he only made two starts in Leicester's victorious Premier League title campaign.
In 2016-17, he made just a solitary start in the League Cup against Chelsea, where he was sent off for elbowing Diego Costa. He announced prior to the final game of the season that he would be moving on and was given a rousing send-off by the Leicester supporters.
It seems unlikely therefore that he will cross paths with Knockaert again, after he helped Brighton reach the Premier League with a number of outstanding performances. The French winger arrived at the King Power Stadium a year earlier than Wasileswki and was at the centre of play-off heartbreak in 2014.
He famously missed a stoppage time penalty in the semi-final against Watford, which would have taken Leicester to the final, before seeing Troy Deeney go up the other end and score the goal that sent them to Wembley. He would come back stronger the following season and earned a place in the Championship team of the season as the Foxes were crowned champions.
Despite both now being ex-Leicester players, they are still immensely popular with the supporters and it seems that the antics of Wasileswki have left a lasting impression on his former teammates.
