Mark Schwarzer comments on support from Leicester City fans

Leicester City

Leicester City stopper Mark Schwarzer says the club's supporters are hitting "the right note" as they try to back the team towards Premier League glory.

Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has said on Sky Sports News, broadcast on March 21 at 10.15am, that the club's supporters are keeping a sense of realism about the Foxes' campaign this season.

The East Midlands outfit currently sit five points clear of Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the Premier League, and with just seven games remaining, they are clear favourites to complete one of the most remarkable title wins in recent memory.

However, while choosing to remain cautious about his team's hopes for the remainder of the season, Schwarzer has suggested that chants of "we are staying up" at the start of fixtures is highlighting how far Leicester have progressed since August, with the club one of the pre-season favourites for relegation.

At the end of their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend, the sound of "we're going to win the league" could be heard from the away section at Selhurst Park, and Schwarzer has praised the approach being taken by the Foxes faithful.

 

Schwarzer said: "Sometimes, it is bewildering that Leicester fans are singing about winning the league. First and foremost, what happens throughout the game is the crowd chanting that we are going to stay up and that is the one that probably hits the right note. At the beginning of the season, everyone wrote Leicester off and named them as one of the main candidates to be relegated.

"To see where we are now at this stage of the season is quite remarkable. The fans are very much embracing the fact that we are going to stay in the league, but on the other hand, they are signing we are going to win the league.

"We have got to be a bit cautious because we still have seven games to go, there are some very difficult games ahead of us but it is in our own hands at the moment."

Leicester must wait until April 3 for their next fixture, with Southampton the visitors to the King Power Stadium.
