​Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has declared it would be 'special' to see Leicester City play in the Champions League next season ​Mail Online report. 

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, the Foxes have taken the Premier League by storm this year and they currently sit at the top of the table two points clear of Tottenham in second place. 

Speaking at his latest conference Madrid legend Zidane, who took over the reins at the Santiago Bernabeu in January after Rafa Benitez was sacked, said "At this stage of the season for Leicester to be leading is an incredible achievement. It's being talked about not just in England but across Europe.

"With so many teams with big budgets in England, if they can be in the Champions League next season, it will be special for football."

Leicester gained promotion to the Premier League in 2014 and several of the players who helped them to escape the dreaded Championship have blossomed in the top tier of English football including Jamie Vardy who currently leads the goalscoring charts with an impressive 19 strikes in 26 appearances. 

Claudio Ranieri's men have only been beaten three times this season including last weekend's dramatic 2-1 defeat to Arsenal due to Danny Welbeck's stoppage-time header. 

Leicester have arguably the easiest run-in of the four teams competing for the title and fans of football all over the world are praying that they succeed in their incredible attempt at glory.

Before they can dream of lifting the Premier League crown though the Foxes have to prepare for their match against Norwich next Saturday.
