After yesterday’s 2 – 1 loss to Manchester United in the Community Shield, Leicester City left back Christian Fuchs said Leicester didn’t deserve to lose.
The Austrian left-back said Leicseter City are almost ready to face Hull this weekend at the KC stadium on Saturday in the opening game of their Premier League campaign, a trophy which they’ll be looking to retain.
Jesse Lindgard opened the scoring in the first half with a fantastic solo goal before Jamie Vardy equaliser shortly after half time as Leicester City looked to dominate the game. It took one moment of magic from Zlatan Ibrahimović who towered up over Wes Morgan to head in the ball less than 10 minutes from full time.
Speaking to the media, Fuchs said
"“I think it was a good performance and we had our chances, a couple more chances than United. We didn’t give away many chances. Unfortunately, they had Ibrahimović who can score something out of nothing. Well done to them.”"
Fuchs went on to say
"“I think a draw would have been fair over 90 minutes. After we conceded the second goal, then we still had a very good chance just before the end of the game. We can live with that because we showed a good performance and we are ready for the Premier League.”"
After a poor Euro Championship performance, Christian Fuchs will be looking to the next season for more success after insisting that he’s not basking in last season’s title win in order to focus on the new campaign.
"“There was simply no time to think about it. The time was too short with the Euros and that. The season is starting already so not now. When I am old.”"
"“There are a lot of tough teams, some great teams. Leicester included? No, we don’t ask from ourselves to win the Premier League again, not at all.”"
Christian Fuchs will have a challenge this season from young left back Ben Chilwell who looks to be fired up for the upcoming season after signing a new 5 year deal with the foxes earlier this summer.
Chilwell who started against Celtic and has featured throughout pre-season had Liverpool hot on his tail but looks to be mentored by Fuchs for the next few seasons and already looks like a great prospect for the future, along with young winger Demarai Gray, Leicester City’s left flank will be looking great in a few years time should they kick on and continue to improve.
