It's been four years and it still doesn't feel real - Jeffrey Schlupp on winning the EPL

Ghana midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp says it feels unreal anytime he remembers he won the English Premier League with Leicester City in the 2015/16 season.

The Foxes defied all odds to win the Premier League in 2016 in one of the most shocking stories in football history.

Jeffrey Schlupp played an integral role in the title-winning season, making 24 appearances and scoring a goal as Leicester were crowned champions.

The Ghana international started that season as a left-back before he was given an advance role by manager Claudio Ranieri in the cause of the campaign. However, his return from a six-week injury saw the best of the winger as he contributed to the strong finish of the club.

Despite the amazing feat by Leicester, Schlupp is still shocked as to how they won the league.

"No way I don't get bored by that," he replied a question from Alex Howell during an interview for his 'Staying in With' show. "Even now, It's been four years I think and it still doesn't feel real, you know," he added.

"I see some pictures pop up every now and then and it just reminds me of the good times we had there (Leicester) and obviously, its still a crazy feeling," he continued.

Schlupp had a tough season a year after winning the league, making only four premier league appearances for Leicester before leaving for Crystal Palace in 2016.
