Taking to Instagram, the Danish stopper has revealed how the New England Patriots legend sent him a note to acknowledge the Foxes’ magical campaign, and his touch has clearly left a mark on a star-struck Schmeichel.
“What a surreal moment,” the keeper began, writing on his @kasperschmeichel handle. “Receiving this message of support from one of my biggest idols and someone who I have been following for many, many years and the best [quarter-back] in the history of the NFL in my opinion.
“I am blown away.”
Brady’s original note encouraged Claudio Ranieri’s miracle makers to continue ‘kicking butt’, and revealed that there were numerous Patriots fans who were offering their backing to the East Midlanders.
Indeed, it’s unsurprising that the Foxes have made such a splash around the world this year, considering their unthinkable EPL campaign.
Heading into this weekend’s matches, Leicester sit seven points clear of Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table with only five matches left to play.
They face West Ham United this weekend and a win—ideally coupled with Spurs slipping up against Stoke City on Monday evening—would put City in an almost unassailable position at the top of the table.
