The Title-Winning Season In Quotes

The story of Leicester City’s 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship title-winning season, with quotes from key figures within the squad and staff.

The Opening Day Match-Winner's Emotions

“It’s a good feeling. It was a great game to start the season, but it’s even better to score the winner against your local rivals. I don’t think some of my mates will be happy with me, but I’ve got bragging rights now! I’ll get some fruity messages I think, but that’s part of the game. I’m just glad that I could help the team get the result.”

Our Rotherham Hero

"I’ll remember this day for the rest of my life. Scoring for the Club I’ve been at the whole of my life, I can’t put it into words. I’m ecstatic at the moment. It’s a great, great feeling. It’s what dreams are made of, hearing the fans sing my name. After being here for so long, it’s what you dream of. It's a great day for me, the boys, and my family."

A Remarkable Turnaround

“It’s been up and down, I think it’s safe to say. I’m very happy with where we are at the moment and where I am. The football we’re playing, I think it suits me very well. The possession-style of football, that’s where I’ve always played my best. In a way I feel sort of reborn. I’m extremely motivated to play with this group of lads and with this Manager.”

The Message From The Manager

“It’s very important [to celebrate with the fans]. They are with us all season. We’re very appreciative. The synergy that we’ve created this year between the players and the fans is fantastic. After relegation, it's not easy, but the effort that they are giving to bring this Club again to the Premier League has been unbelievable.”

Hamza's West Brom Heroics

“It’s an amazing day for all the lads in there. They deserve it. Honestly, the last couple of months have been tough. It’s been a different kind of challenge for us and we’ve had to dig deep. You’ve got to put your body on the line sometimes. We played clever, and we defended for our lives. It means so much to us and we’ve got one final push to get the job done.”

Friday Night Plans

“Friday night, I usually go to watch my son’s session in the under-11s. Then, because it’s the weekend, we usually have pizza, with the family, with the kids. So tonight, we’ll do the same. I’ll watch my son’s session, then we’ll have pizza with the kids altogether.”

Clinching The Title

“It’s what we’ve been working towards since the start of the season. Sometimes we made it look easy, but it wasn’t. Even when things weren’t going our way, we stuck together; now we are rewarded. Everyone at the Club, from the kitman, the kitchen staff, the ones who play less, and the fans... it’s ours now to enjoy.”

Getting Hands On The Trophy

“I’ve never experienced anything like this, so I’m trying to soak up as much of it as possible. We don’t know when these moments come; it’s important to enjoy them. We’re champions and we’re up. The fans have been incredible all season. They were the 12th man for us and really got us over the line.”

Wrapping Up An Unforgettable Season

“What a day! It feels so amazing. I can’t explain how I’m feeling right now, I’m so happy. I love to make the supporters happy because they are here for us. I just try to dance to make it more fun! I can’t forget this day. This is something special for me in my career.”
