[Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel after hearing the odds of the Foxes winning the English Premier League title at the beginning of the season were the same as someone seeing The King of Rock and Roll alive and well] Well then, let’s hope Elvis is found alive

[Leicester City will not use government furlough scheme during coronavirus crisis] We’ve been through so much together and come through every challenge stronger as a group. This will be no different. We’re here to support each other through the immediacy of this and, when the dust settles and the world is ready for football to return, we’ll be there, picking up where we left off, driving the club forward

[Kasper Schmeichel recalls Leicester City title party at Jamie Vardy’s house] I was at home with my family. Through the run in, I hadn’t watched a single one of Tottenham’s games. So I went with my wife, kids and brother in law down to the village to go for dinner to try to block it out – I left my phone at home.

I went to the lounge and Gary Cahill scored so I told myself to stay calm. Then Eden Hazard equalised but the last few minutes were torture. Chelsea had a late free kick that Willian was going to take, which he passed into the corner, and the relief when he did that was unbelievable. It was pride, joy and pure ecstasy. I can’t describe it.

I celebrated with my family, who I wanted to be with, because they had been with me through the whole journey. A lot of the lads were at Jamie Vardy’s house so when we were done at home I drove to Jamie’s and we got on it from there.

For Leicester, it was incredible and we wanted to see what was happening in the town so we drove into town and four or five days later, Vards put a few pictures in our group asking who the cars parked at his house belonged to, because no one had been to claim them

[Kasper Schmeichel reveals what Esteban Cambiasso was like at Leicester City] He was amazing. Honestly, I loved him, he was brilliant. What a player, and what a guy. He was basically a manager already. Even on the pitch, he was changing tactics and things like that, he was class. The way he was, the way he behaved, the way he looked after himself, you could tell there was a reason he’d been 10 years at such a big club [Inter Milan]. Like I say, I really enjoyed playing with him, but he was the first name that came to my mind when asked about ‘Parched.’
