Christian Fuchs joined Leicester as a free agent from Shalke 04. He and many with him would probably not have believed what would happen during his six seasons at the club and what was achieved during those years.
Leicester made massive progress in the days of Fuchs and at first he also had a very influencial impact in the team as a steady left back, but had to see his place being taken over by Ben Chilwell.
