That a team like Leicester is able to win the Premier League – everyone has to know what their team-mate on the pitch does and what the coach tells him and play with that little extra motivation.’
Staale Solbakkeb continued with: ‘We all cheered for Leicester last season, the whole world did that. It was very good for world football that an outsider like Leicester won the championship in England. Everyone can learn from that’ Which is also very true.
Leicester City have however not started the season of as well as they did last season, lately though they have found their old form back, and that could be a huge threat for Copenhagen tomorrow.
