Ex-Leicester City midfielder Esteban Cambiasso has spoken of his continued devotion to the club, after returning to the King Power Stadium to speak to the fans at half-time during their 2-0 Premier League loss to Manchester City on Sunday. 

Former Real Madrid and Internazionale star Cambiasso played for the Foxes during the 2014/2015 season, becoming pivotal in their dramatic escape from relegation at the end of the campaign.

In an interview with the Leicester Mercury, the 37-year-old former Argentina international discussed his continued adoration for the Foxes, and claimed that he remains a supporter of the East Midlands side.

"It was great, a fantastic moment because I know how much the supporters love me. They know I love them too," he said.

"It was an amazing moment, but it didn’t surprise me because they are very good supporters. I have very good memories of the year I lived here.

"I have said before when I left it was one of the best years in my career. I have great memories and when the supporters can show me how they feel through the newspapers or social media they do and it is great."

Addressing the Foxes unprecedented Premier League title victory the season after he left, Cambiasso added: "I was very, very happy because when I left it got even better. I was happy because I had a chance to be a Leicester player for one year and after I continued to be a Leicester supporter.

"I watched on and lived like a supporter, suffering with my ex-teammates and friends. It was an amazing season for me too, not as a player but as a supporter watching as my friends did something amazing. I saw everything on the television and I was thrilled for everyone."
