The Cabinet should knight all Leicester players - PFA chief Taylor

Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) chief executive Gordon Taylor believes The Cabinet should honour all Leicester City players.

The Foxes have turned heads in the football world by winning the Premier League title this season and Taylor suggests that locals like Danny Drinkwater, Jamie Vardy and Danny Simpson should be referred to as 'sir' while the foreigners in the squad be handed honorary knighthoods such is their amazing achievement.

"It goes beyond football what they've done," Taylor told the Daily Mail.

"It remains to be seen if the choice to add them to the honours list comes from The Cabinet, but I would hope so.

"As football goes it's probably, in my lifetime, one of the finest achievements I've seen.

"Special success stories come from different areas of life. Leicester have shown that sport and football are a very important part of the fabric of this country. They give hope to any team who think they can never make it to top."
