Leicester City’s ‘Player of the Year’ in their dramatic relegation-dodging campaign last season, Esteban Cambiasso, has bid farewell to the Foxes. The 34-year-old’s one-year-deal came to an end this summer and now the Argentine midfielder has decided not to sign a new deal.

Leicester then released a rather lovely response to the news on the club website…


Having played for Independiente, River Plate, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Leicester, as well as over 50 caps for Argentina, the veteran has enjoyed a superb career. Indeed, his trophy cabinet includes one Champions League title, five Serie A winners’ medals and one La Liga winners’ medal, which ain’t too shabby. One wonders where he’ll go next.
