Christian Fuchs grew up watching the Premier League as a Manchester United supporter. He was drawn to greats of the game like Eric Cantona and Sir Alex Ferguson who exhibited excellence every time they stepped on the pitch.
Although Fuchs would never play for his childhood dream team, the defender would go on to accomplish great things at another Premier League club; an unexpected one in Leicester City.
Most know Leicester City now as the club that defied all odds and captured the 2015/16 Premier League trophy, beating out the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and United to accomplish one of the greatest underdog dethronements in sports history.
The names that have since solidified themselves outside of the King Power Stadium such as N’Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez have shown that Leicester’s miraculous run wasn’t a fluke. Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel continue to have their own success with the Foxes to this very day.
However, Fuchs, now 35, is readying himself for a new chapter in his storybook career; one in Major League Soccer with Charlotte FC.
The club won’t debut until 2022, but there’s already plenty of buzz around one of MLS’ newest clubs.
