Leicester defender Faes: We've turned season around by pure grit

Leicester City defender Wout Faes has said that everyone in the team is now working hard to keep clean sheets.

The Foxes were enduring a miserable run of defensive performances in the Premier League, which had led them to the bottom of the table position.

However, they are now working their way up the table, with summer signing Faes coming into the team and helping them become a lot meaner at the back.

“Grit, I think,” he told Het Nieuwsblad after a 2-0 win over Everton away from home at the weekend.

“A good tackle or a block that prevents a goal: I enjoy that so much.

“The entire team now radiates that: the absolute will to keep a clean sheet. But to be clear, that’s not just [to] my credit.”
