Leicester City‘s Premier League victory has struck a chord with fans and players across the world alike.
While the EPL title was Leicester City’s first-ever major championship, few clubs have a culture of winning championships quite like Real Madrid.
Indeed, while the Foxes have spent their 132-year history chasing glory—largely unsuccessfully—Los Merengues have won a whopping 32 Spanish titles.
Zinedine Zidane’s side remain in the hunt for number 33—which would end a four-year wait for the domestic league—as they currently sit one point behind La Liga leaders Barcelona with just two matches to play in the Spanish top flight.
Similarly, Los Blancos have also enjoyed great success in Europe, having won a record 10 European Cup-Champions League titles during their illustrious history.
However, Leicester’s triumph has even had an impact on some of Real’s key stars.

His teammate Isco went even further, not just offering his congratulations to the Foxes, but also thanking Claudio Ranieri’s side for “making us believe that, in football, nothing is impossible.”
Enhorabuena @LCFC y gracias por hacernos creer que en el futbol no hay nada imposible??????
