The year is 2021: Here’s where Leicester’s famous title-winning team are now

2016 was a great time to be alive.

Europe wasn’t submerged, the lizards hadn’t overthrown mankind, and against all the odds, Leicester won the Premier League.

Claudio Ranieri had the pleasure of fielding his first-choice eleven virtually  every week.

But what are those players up to in 2021?

Kasper Schmeichel


The great Dane famously followed in his father’s footsteps and joined Man United following David De Gea’s move to Real Madrid.

Schmeichel junior won the Eurasia Cup while at Old Trafford before he moved to FC Copenhagen earlier this year.

Danny Simpson


Due the fact the court case is still ongoing we are not legally allowed to discuss Simpson’s alleged indiscretions.

But he definitely did it!

Wes Morgan


Morgan saw out his career at the King Power stadium and is now a coach of the U21s.

The limited edition Captain Wes Morgan bottles of rum are now highly-sought after collectables and fetch up to 2,000,000 Yen online.

Robert Huth


The big German retired in 2018 to pursue a full-time career in banter.

Now a team captain on Question of Sport.

The viewing figures for the most recent episode peaked at 17 people.

Christian Fuchs


After Princess Kendall Jenner was photographed wearing one Fuchs’ #NoFuchsGiven skull t-shirts, the Austrian’s clothing line became the most popular in the world.

Now a regular headliner at Paris, London and Milan fashion weeks, Fuchs has made more money from his skull toe rings alone than he ever made from football.

Riyad Mahrez


Won two La Liga titles following his big-money move to Real Madrid in 2018, inheriting Cristiano Ronaldo’s No7 shirt.

Formed a devastating forward trio with Gareth Bale and Harry Kane and top scored as Algeria won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Had his career cut short when he was selected to partake in the 2020 Hunger Games.

Danny Drinkwater

Drinkwater-Evian-advert-742x972 (1)

Famously a one-cap wonder for England, Drinkwater now plies his trade for MK Dons in League One.

Still the face of Evian.

N’Golo Kante


After winning the Premier League with Chelsea, the Frenchman made a big money move to PSG.

Man of the Match in France’s 2018 World Cup final against Colombia and PSG’s Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund in 2020.

Widely regarded as the best defensive midfielder in the world.

Nobody even knows who Claude Makelele is anymore.

Marc Albrighton


Offloaded by Leicester in the summer of 2017, Albrighton embarked on a series of loan spells at Championship clubs.

Now at Birmingham where he sits on the bench every week.

Still wears his Premier League winners medal around his neck for weddings and birthdays.

Shinji Okazaki

Japan v Syria - FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifier 2nd Round

An absolute God in Japan — mostly because of his role as presenter of the Takeshi’s Castle reboot.

Still emails Jamie Vardy every couple of months. He hasn’t received a reply for years.

Jamie Vardy


Following the title win, Vardy spent four more years with Leicester and ended up on the exact same goal tally for the club as Gary Lineker – 103.

Finished his career at Ibiza Town where he scored 74 goals in one season despite frequently throwing up on the pitch mid-game.

He now runs ‘Vardy Party’ club nights and has been known as the ‘King of Magaluf’ ever since he traded his Football Writers’ 2016 Footballer of the Year trophy for a crate of WKD and two flame shirts.



Yes, he still wears his wrist cast.

And one last bonus…

Andy King

Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League

Still at Leicester and proudly wears the captain’s armband having made over 500 appearances.

The East Stand is due to be renamed after him upon his retirement.

Leicester forever and always.

Until the lizards wipe us out once and for all.
