Defender staying focused

Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs is staying pragmatic ahead of the Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid.

The Foxes have turned around their season following the axing of former boss Claudio Ranieri and they have picked up Premier League wins to drag themselves away from the wrong end of the table.

They also pulled off a last 16-win over Sevilla in Europe, despite being behind after the first leg, and now Fuchs says they will go into the last eight determined to enjoy themselves.

The 30-year-old told talkSPORT: "Who knows [what can happen], it's written in the stars. I mean, we are in the last eight of the Champions League, who ever thought, who ever could have pictured that Leicester would be there?

"We are very happy to be there and we will take whatever comes. The odds are probably better than winning the Premier League last season, no?

"We are not going to expect anything, just keeping our belief and simply enjoying like we did last season, the moment and the spirit we have right now. With a little bit of luck let's see where we can end up."
