It’s difficult to put into words what Leicester City has done by winning the 2015/16 Barclays Premier League title. In a sport dominated by big money clubs, it’s unfathomable for a team that was in last place in April of 2015 to somehow win the title this year. It’s not the biggest upset in soccer — it’s probably the biggest upset in any sport ever.
So for good reason, the Leicester City players went absolutely nuts when the whistle blew during the Chelsea versus Spurs game which mathematically handed them the title and effectively ended Tottenham’s campaign. Christian Fuchs, a left back for Leceister, recorded the team watching at teammate Jamie Vardy’s house. And it was lit as hell.

Their celebration is warranted given that they were 5,000-to-1 to win the title at the beginning of the year. I’m not sure how their next game against Everton will go considering these guys are probably going to be hammered on champagne for the next week, but you’d have to imagine there’s going to be some hangovers on that field which is something I respect.
Let’s just hope more celebration videos start trickling in from England over the next few days. They deserve it. .
