Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has said the Foxes’ Premier League triumph will give hope to every other club in world football.

Tottenham failed to beat Chelsea on Monday night meaning they could no longer catch the 5000-1 shots at the top of the table.

And Schwarzer – who also received a winner’s medal last season with Chelsea – believes the club’s underdog story proves that it is possible for smaller clubs to break into the Champions League at the expense of bigger clubs.

“It’s phenomenal for a club like Leicester,” Kasper Schmeichel’s backup told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“It’s been talked about all season and it gives every other club in this country, and not just this country but the rest of the world, hope that you can break in [to the Champions League] and you can win the league.

“You can cause an incredible upset if you have the right players, the right manager, the right mixture and I think Leicester have just got it spot on this season.”
