Tom Brady wishes Leicester City, Kasper Schmeichel luck in EPL quest

Friday April 15th, 2016

Leicester City has picked up another supporter in the United States: Tom Brady. 

After catching wind that Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is a fan of the New England Patriots, the four-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback returned the favor, urging Schmeichel and the Foxes to finish off their title quest. In a video posted by NFL UK, Brady said Leicester has the support of him and his teammates, adding, "I know it's a big chance for you guys to win this title, and we're all rooting for you, so best of luck."

This far from Leicester's first tie-in to the NFL. Defender Christian Fuchs said a couple of weeks ago that he wants to become an NFL kicker once he is done playing soccer, and earlier in the winter Leicester and the Carolina Panthers sent jerseys to each other during a strong period of mutual admiration.

Leicester currently holds a seven-point lead over Tottenham with five games to play in the Premier League season.
