No Fuchs Given: Why Every Footballer Should Be More Like Leicester City's Christian Fuchs

No Fuchs Given: Why Every Footballer Should Be More Like Leicester City's Christian Fuchs
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Leicester City are the talk of the Premier League this season as we enter February with Claudio Ranieri's men sitting proudly atop the table, with a three point buffer between them and Manchester City in second place.

While everyone and their dog has been raving about Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy (and rightfully so to be fair), there are also a number of unsung heroes doing their part in a Hollywood-style season.

One of those men is Christian Fuchs.

The Austrian full back arrived in the summer and has settled in remarkably quickly, becoming one of the most loved characters in the dressing room, and we think that the World would be a better place if more people were like him.

Unexpected news catch you off guard? Just roll with it..

Fuchs was convinced to leave Schalke in the Bundesliga to join Leicester by Nigel Pearson, but before the two had ever met the English manager was sacked and Fuchs was left in a difficult position.

My agent called saying they’d fired Nigel. I thought he was joking because he knew I was about to leave for England. Then it was, “No way, how can it be?”

‘I’d spoken to a coach, he’d convinced me to go there, and I will never have one training session with him. It was very weird.

via Daily Mail.

It certainly was weird, but Fuchs showed up to work and began life under Ranieri without a bothy.

If you've got a rude sounding name, fully embrace it:

And not a single Fuch was given that day:


Show your teammates some love when they do well:

Christian Fuchs' social media pages are becoming a 'go-to' when Leicester win..

Have a laugh, and share it with others:

With the explosion of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram into our daily lives, it seems as though the bigger the star, the less fun they are allowed to have. That is not true for Mr. Fuchs, who regularly has the craic and shares it with his followers:

Like Red-Ass with Robert Huth:


Painful 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' with Shinji Okazaki..

Or taking the piss at bowling:

Or something completely random, just to be different:


Always be prepared for the next stage of your life:

Fuchs is nailed on for becoming a TV personality when he hangs up his boots, so why not get some valuable practice on your teammates when you've got them around?

Dive head-first into your new surroundings:

He's been in Leicester around six months and he's proven a huge hit with the locals, embracing rugby is bound to help.

Be the reason your workplace is described as having "great team spirit":

Don't be afraid to have a 'fanboy' moment:

You're cool, but don't be "too cool for school"..


But most of all.. Manage your own social media accounts.

The fans will absolutely love it if you are real with them, and don't just try to sell them things.

What a hero.
