With the majority of Leicester City players continuing to enjoy their holidays this summer, left back Christian Fuchs has been on media duties reflecting on last season.

Speaking to over the weekend, with our former Austrian captain making 48 appearances across the campaign and taking in nine appearances in the Champions League campaign, he’s well placed to assess the season, our struggles and more importantly the high lights.

With struggles in the Premier League but success in the European campaign, Craig Shakespeare did lead us to survival with points to spare following Claudio Ranieri’s departure, and for Fuchs whilst the Champions League will take most people’s attention, he pointed to the three one victory over Liverpool in Shakey’s first game in charge as being all important.

‘I definitely have to mention the Champions League campaign but, for me, the Liverpool game at King Power Stadium was a crucial one. To come back after a lot of criticism and come back very strong with a winning streak was great. There are a couple of moments but that one is a nice one to look back on.’

The game of course saw a Jamie Vardy brace with Danny Drinkwater hitting the back of the net in the middle, at it did register our first league victory of 2017 and moved us out of the bottom three.

Leicester then went on a run of six straight victories, including the aggregate comeback against Sevilla in the process as we edged towards league safety and reached the Champions League quarter finals.

All in all not a bad year.
