FoL would have truly loved to be writing this article from the prospective of Leicester City being in the Champions League. But how does the squad feel?
In Foxes of Leicester’s collective opinion, Leicester City’s current squad is more suited to Europa League football than the Champions League, presently. The Foxes can definitely challenge to lift the title in the former next season – if their stars return and are retained from potential transfer suitors.
It is a quality roster, one that probably deserved CL qualification comparatively: with entry as a big six side, along with Tottenham Hotspur’s and Arsenal’s failings. Not to mention Chelsea’s and Manchester United’s restructuring, which opened a great window of opportunity to solidify Premier League third place.
United weren’t even the clearly better side on the day; the East Midlanders, again, had ample possession and efforts on goal to seal Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team’s fate. But, alas, as Golden boot winner Jamie Vardy said in his post-match tweet – ‘it wasn’t to be’.
Leicester City’s talisman reveals squad feeling
Obviously every single player at Leicester City will be terribly disappointed not to have secured the CL for 2020/21, especially losing in the manner that eventually arose against Man Utd. Club legend Vardy echoes that sentiment. Although he also said, following United’s 2-0 win, that the King Power personnel are happy they realised the ambition of European qualification.
