Leicester City have stolen these three clubs' thunder, Mike Stowell admits

Leicester City

The success of West Ham United, Bournemouth and Watford should not be overlooked, Stowell says.

Leicester City's success this season has overshadowed the incredible achievements of three Premier League clubs, Foxes goalkeeping coach Mike Stowell has admitted to Sky Sports News.

Leicester secured their first ever top-flight title by virtue of Tottenham's failure to beat Chelsea on Monday night, despite being among the favourites for relegation at the start of the campaign.

But according to Stowell, who's been on the Foxes' coaching staff for 11 years intermittently, theirs is not the only success story this season.

"We've stolen the thunder of teams like West Ham, Bournemouth and Watford this season - they've been amazing," said the 51-year-old told Sky Sports News on Tuesday.

"West Ham... (have been) incredible. Watford and Bournemouth in their first season in the Premier... what they've achieved - don't underestimate that."

West Ham continue to harbour hopes of Champions League qualification with three fixtures remaining, while Watford have already secured their place in next season's top flight and Bournemouth require only a point to do likewise in their debut campaign at this level.

Leicester finished 14th last term and Stowell has listed two key traits for those clubs to follow as they look to replicate the Foxes' achievement.

He added: "It's only because of what we've done and hopefully this has set out now what everybody can achieve, through hard work and good scouting and that's what we've got here."

Stowell has also acted as first team coach, assistant manager and caretaker manager during his time at the King Power Stadium, in which he has seen the club rise from League One.
