Many Leicester City fans have discussed Marc Albrighton as the wide man turned 30.
Albrighton is undoubtedly a hero at the King Power. Deemed not good enough for Aston Villa, the wide-midfielder was subsequently dished out by the club, and was picked up on a free transfer by Leicester City in 2014 – what a signing that turned out to be.
He has featured 191 times for the Foxes, scoring 13 goals and assisting a hefty 32 times. Despite never playing for England, he was instrumental in Leicester’s title-winning season; he played every match, scored twice and assisted seven times as Claudio Ranieri’s side did the unthinkable.
Since then, he has been a consistent performer in the East Midlands, racking up many more appearances and top performances in the process, helping the Foxes reach the level they are now.
Many fans wished the legend a happy birthday, and also discussed the player from a footballing context. One said he had a ‘wand of a right’ foot, others discussed how ‘underrated’ he is.
