Eduardo Macia joined Leicester City in September 2016 as the club’s Head of Senior Player Recruitment and his first window didn’t go too badly. With the Premier League champions having turned a corner since the controversial dismissal of Claudio Ranieri, things are looking up for Leicester and Macia and that’s been evident from comments he’s given to Italy’s TMW.

Fresh from seeing Leicester knock Sevilla out of the Champions League, Macia was asked the secret to the Foxes success: “Humility, no doubt. Humility has never been lacking and will never be lacking, this is crucial. We know that. And we also know that we are in a tournament where there are the best teams in the world, but we will try to go through.”

Macia also made it clear how big the feel good factor is at Leicester City right now, something which can only help the club over the rest of the season: “To say that we are happy is an understatement. We have taken another big step, achieved another great result. This is the reality. After the Premier League last season we find ourselves today in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The dream continues.”

Leicester’s Premier League triumph was unlikely enough but to top that with a Champions League trophy would be taking the dream to whole new heights, but Macia knows there’s no harm in thinking about it: “Dreaming does not cost anything.”
