Cape Town - Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel envisioned himself becoming a Premier League champion one day, after he lifted the trophy last weekend.

The 29-year-old has played an integral part in the Foxes' remarkable campaign, making 35 league appearances and keeping 15 clean sheets.

"It is funny because when I broke my foot last year I did a lot of talks to young kids back home in Denmark to talk about motivation," Schmeichel said.

"I came across a picture of myself back at Old Trafford stood next to the Premier League trophy. One of my friends said to me, 'Do you honestly think you will ever win it?' I said I had dreamed about it, but wasn't sure.

"He said, 'If you don't believe it, it will never happen'. From that moment I said I would believe it could happen one day. Then I said at the end of my talk that the next time you will see me with this trophy I would have won it myself.

"I didn't think it would come this quickly though! It is absolutely amazing. That is the just the beauty of football - anything can happen. This is a dream come true definitely."
