Cambiasso on Premier League survival at Leicester and his future

Esteban Cambiasso believes helping Leicester City to Premier League survival ranks among the best achievements of his successful career.

Esteban Cambiasso is of the opinion that avoiding relegation with Leicester City this season ranks among his greatest footballing achievements, as explained to the Leicester Mercury.

The 34-year-old won 23 titles at River Plate, Real Madrid and Inter Milan before making a shock move to the King Power Stadium last summer.

Pulling off the great escape with the Foxes may feel special, but let's not forget triumphs such as the treble under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan in 2010.

Cambiasso is a world renowned footballer, appreciated in all leagues he has featured in, Europe and South America, and such comments after all the silverware he has claimed down the years come as something of a surprise.

"I am really happy for me and the group," Cambiasso told Leicester Mercury.

"We worked hard all season and when people thought we were dead and buried, we produced our best performances.

"This is a great achievement but the league is 38 matches and, sometimes, you have bad matches and other times you play better.

"I have enjoyed the season. There has been a great atmosphere in every stadium, even better than I imagined before I came here.

"I made some big changes, I changed country after 10 years and changed situations because for all my career, I have been fighting for cups and titles. This was a different situation."

While the Argentina international has not publicly stated whether or not he will be plying his trade at the King Power Stadium next season, Cambiasso has promised to consider the idea.

Cambiasso is, however, out of contract this summer and Leicester are interested in keeping the midfielder over a longer period of time. Keeping hold of a player with such experience could go a long way in assisting their fight against relegation for the 2015/16 campaign.

"This is a moment now to relax and after our last game at home I will go on holiday," he continued.

"I want to put in a great performance for the supporters and I want them to enjoy this game.

"The fact we have survived with a game to go is good for them.

"Then, after my holidays, I will think about what is next."
