Watch: Martin O'Neill & Graeme Souness' Comically Contrasting Views On Leicester

Leicester City's Champions League dream is over after a 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid.

Despite giving a great showing against an Atletico side that has reached the semi-final stage for the third time in four years, the Foxes are out of Europe after losing the tie 2-1 on aggregate.

For the neutrals, there appears to be a mixed reaction across social media, as some fans would have loved to see the fairy-tale continue, while others are happy that the players who chucked it in and got Claudio Ranieri the sack have nothing else to play for in their season.

Interestingly, these contrasting views also popped up on the TV coverage of the match.


With Martin O'Neill at the game alongside Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard for BT Sport, the Ireland boss praised the club and it's players for an incredible performance.

And closer to home, Graeme Souness joined Kevin Kilbane on TV3, but rather lament the loss of a perfect Hollywood script, he ripped into the players attitudes and inflated sense of self-worth.

Heroes, or a bunch of pricks?


It not only shows you exactly what you'll get when you invite either man into the studio for punditry, as O'Neill tends to see the beauty in every little moment while Souness will make it perfectly clear how much he dislikes modern footballers, it also shows just how contrasting opinions can be on football, and Leicester in particular.

O'Neill may be biased due to his history with Leicester, but Souness hates a lot of things. Who's side are you on?
