Richard the football inspiration….?
Before I write another word, let me say that this post is meant to be light-hearted, and has nothing whatsoever to do with any ill-feeling about Leicester versus York. I think the photograph is amusing and, as someone has posted on my Facebook page, how on earth is he going to keep that hat on during the match?
So, here goes. A lot has been written recently about Richard’s galvanising effect upon the Leicester City football team, but it seems that Sportsgrid has caught him in the act! Here he is, photographed wearing the team colours. What a scoop!
In another way, there may be something in this. This time last year, Leicester City were still in a relegation place but now lead by two points with eleven matches remaining. Is he an unofficial attack coach in an era when too many teams still rely on the pike wall?
