Robert Huth played a crucial part in Leicester City’s Premier League winning season during their campaign of 2015-16 and the German defender is expected to once again be in the heart of Claudio Ranieri’sdefence as the next season is edging closer and closer.
Standing at 6’3, Huth is a powerful defender who has been receiving non-stop praise for everything that he has accomplished since joining: ‘’The Foxes’’ back in February of 2015 which is the time when the experienced centre-back originally joined on a season long loan deal and after a string of impressive performances, he was offered a permanent contract and Huth has not disappointed.
Leicester City recently played the finals of the 2016 English FA Community Shield as they faced off with Manchester United at the Wembley Stadium and a late goal from the recent signing of Jose Mourinho, ZlatanIbrahimovic edged out the victory for the Red Devils as the Portuguese coach secured his first piece of silverware as the manager of Manchester United.
Even though Leicester City lost the match it still was an intense match that had to be decided in the last few minutes with a late goal from the Swedish giant ZlatanIbrahimovic making the difference as Manchester United just barely managed to scrap a 2-1 triumph.
Robert Huth was one of the few defenders of Leicester City who managed to keep up with the attacking forces of Manchester United as he kept both Wayne Rooney and Ibrahimovic at bay with limited options for the majority of the match.
The defensive partner of Huth, Wes Morgan got outmatched by Ibrahimovic as the veteran attacker managed to score the winning goal for Manchester United while Danny Simpson made a few mistakes and picked up a rather unnecessary yellow card after tackling Wayne Rooney.
It’s quite extraordinary to see a player who joined not even 2 years ago and already has so much of an influence and impact with a team but this is the case with Robert Huth as he is arguably one of the most important players of Leicester City and they will need to him to be at his best in order to defend their Premier League title.
