Robert Huth breaks Premier League record

The 31 year old defender of Leicester City, Robert Huth has carved his name in the history books of the Premier League after becoming the German player with most appearances in the top tier English League. Robert Huth is a consistent starter for Leicester City and has helped the club in reaching the top spots of the league with impressive performances.

Dietmar Hamann was the former holder of this record but Robert Huth surpassed it after the player of Leicester City recorded his 269th appearance in the Premier League during the 3-0 triumph of his club against Swansea City. The former goal-keeper Jens Lehmann is currently standing in 3rd place of most appearances done by a German in the Premier League with a total of 148 appearances.

Robert Huth has turned into one of the best signings of Leicester City in recent times as the German defender joined the Premier League club back in June of 2015 for a fee which is believed to be around of £3 million and has consistently been performing at a high level.

In the season when Huth officially joined Leicester City, the German played helped City in going from being placed in the bottom spots of the Premier League to securing the 14th spot and now Leicester City is positioned in the higher section of the English League which has taken the world of football by surprise.

Huth began his professional playing career in Chelsea where he managed to make his debut at the age of 17 but his time in Stamford Bridge did not last a very long period of time as his chances of snatching a consistent spot in the first team of the club was limited due to all of the competition that he faced. John Terry, William Gallas and Ricardo Carvalho were the main defenders of the team at that time and this forced Huth on having to stay on the sidelines for a long period of time.
The German defender eventually left Chelsea and went on to join Middlesbrough, Stoke City and his current club Leicester City and has turned into one of the main figures of the team.
