London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that the entire nation is relishing the prospect of Leicester City lifting the Premier League title this season.
Leicester continued their superb form as they moved five points ahead of second-placed Tottenham with a stunning 3-1 win over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Delighted at the unexpected success enjoyed by Claudio Ranieri’s side, Wenger said the whole country is behind Leicester apart from fans of Arsenal, City and Tottenham, the Mirror reported.
Citing Leicester as a ‘fantastic example’ for the league, the Frenchman said the club shows that the football was about the quality of work rather than just about spending money.
Star players Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez costed the Midlands club a mere 1.35million pounds in transfer fees. Arsenal will take on surprise pace-setters Leicester at the Emirates next Sunday.
