Christian Fuchs: Leicester City league win was ‘pure happiness’

Leicester City wins the title despite of 1:5000 odds

Eden Hazard’s late equalizer for Chelsea against Tottenham may have secured Leicester City its maiden Premier League title Monday but it was the celebrations of a group of young men in a kitchen some 90 miles away that dominated the sports pages and news broadcasts the next day.

Leicester-City-v-Liverpool

Leicester City players had gathered at the house of star striker Jamie Vardy to watch the game rivals Tottenham had to win to keep its title hopes alive.
Naturally, they celebrated wildly when the final whistle at Stamford Bridge confirmed a 2-2 draw and ensured the club was champions of England for the first time in its 132-year history.
The moment was captured on the phone of Leicester defender Christian Fuchs and posted to Twitter shortly after. At the time of publishing, the video has been retweeted 220,000 times and favorited 180,000 times.
