Leicester midfielder Andy King: My career revenge on Chelsea

Leicester City midfielder Andy King has spoken of his career revenge on former club Chelsea.

Currently on-loan with Huddersfield Town, King was part of Leicester's 2016 Premier League title winning team.

“In the last game of the 2016 season we played Chelsea away," King told Matt Piper's Positive Vibes podcast.

“I was at Chelsea as a kid and got released when I was 16 and came to Leicester. They obviously thought I wasn't going to play in their first team which is fair enough.

“But I went back 11 years later and we got a guard of honour going on to the pitch because we were Premier League winners.

“To go back to the club that said: 'You're not going to play in our first team,' and them have to make a guard of honour for us to walk down as Premier League champions, that's one of my favourite games as well."
