It Hasn't Sunk In Yet - Albrighton

It Hasn't Sunk In Yet - Albrighton

Goalscoring winger Marc Albrighton has admitted it'll take a while for Leicester City's victory over Sevilla in midweek to sink in.

Trailing the first leg two one with Jamie Vardy's late effort keeping Champions League hopes alive, Leicester booked their place in the quarter final draw on Friday morning with goals coming from skipper Wes Morgan and Albrighton himself to give us the three two aggregate win at the King Power Stadium.

Speaking to in his own post game press conference, a delighted Albrighton explained.

'It`s going to take a while to sink in because it`s a fantastic achievement for the Club. We thoroughly deserved it and deserved the win on the night because we were a better side. Everything about the performance meant we deserved to go through. There was a lot of good factors - the effort, the quality of the football that we played, our determination and most of all probably our belief.'

With many believing that the round of 16 stage would be where we excited the competition, Albrighton went on to say that even though most had probably written us off, the players remained confidence that we could turn the tie around and keep our most recent form going - especially in front of the home fans given their backing.

'People probably wrote us off before saying it was a step too far but as a group we believed and we know the fans did as well. It`s a fantastic night for everyone involved. We knew it would be a special occasion and that the fans would turn up. They didn`t disappoint because it was everything that we thought it would be and more.'

As for his second goal in European competition, scoring our first in the Champions League as well, he ended by saying.

'I just wanted to hit the target and not shank it! Luckily it`s nestled in the bottom corner and it`s a feeling that will live with me forever. My family were there and everything that I achieve, I want to share with them. This is no different - they`re a massive part of everything I do so to share special moments like tonight with them is fantastic.'
