'Club legend': Leicester 'hero' set to depart this summer as some fans celebrate 'end of an era'
Some Leicester City fans have saying their goodbyes to defender Christian Fuchs after it was announced the Austria international is due to leave the club at the end of the season.
It was announced by the Foxes on their website that after six years, one Premier League title and one FA Cup trophy, the left-back will leave upon the expiration of his contract.
Fuchs has enjoyed a fantastic career with the Midlands outfit having joined the club back in 2014. His first season saw him saw him lift the club’s first-ever league title as the King Power Stadium team beat 5,000/1 odds.
His impact has dwindled over the years, however, he has proven a leader of the dressing room, helping the youngsters through the early stages of the Europa League campaign.
Older heads rarely ever get the credit they deserve.
Many think that whilst they don’t feature in many games, they prove useless, which couldn’t be further from the truth. As with David Luiz at Arsenal, Fuchs most likely acts as a guardian for the likes of Luke Thomas, who is making his breakthrough at left-back this season.
Here are how some fans reacted to the news…
Top player, best left back we’ve had and someone who got what the clubs about

I've never seen a sturdier 4, for us, than Fuchs, Morgan, huth and Simpson. Class player and a hero forever to the foxes.
