Andrej Kramaric reacts to Leicester City title triumph

Pre Kick Off

Loaned out by Leicester City, Andrej Kramaric says he is proud to be associated with the club.

Spare a thought for Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric, who missed out on the title celebrations last night after being loaned out mid-season.

The 24-year-old moved to Hoffenheim in pursuit of regular football, after sitting behind Leonardo Ulloa in the pecking order at Leicester, who himself was backing up top goalscorer Jamie Vardy.

Kramaric signed a year earlier from Dinamo Zagreb, but scored just four goals for the Foxes in 20 appearances.

The Croatian has commented on Leicester's title triumph, clinched on Monday night after second placed Tottenham failed to beat Chelsea.

Kramaric told Tuttomercatoweb: "I am delighted and very proud to have been, and in fact still be, a Leicester City player.

"I'm happy to have been part of one of the best teams I've ever played, not only from a technical point of view but also the relations of friendship. it's amazing to breathe the great atmosphere inside the squad, and everything was built for success."

His record in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim is creditable, scoring five goals and providing four assists in 13 appearances since moving on loan.

Whether he has a future at Leicester remains unclear, and will depend on who the club buy and sell in the summer, but the Croatian is a born goalscorer, who the Foxes may regret giving away without giving more of a chance.
