With possible exception of Chelsea.

Leicester City made history once again as they became the first club to play hoof-ball in a Champions League quarter-final with the possible exception of Chelsea.

And maybe Liverpool, we can’t remember.

The Foxes, otherwise heroic, bowed out of Europe’s elite competition with pride intact following a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Atlético Madrid.

And they could also hold their heads up high in the knowledge that high balls were coming at every available opportunity.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Christian Fuchs, a left-back from Neunkirchen, gestured frantically at us to get in the box.

He said: “Get in the box!

“Yes I know it’s not working and the game is over and you’re not one of our players.

“But it’s ever so hard to disengage sometimes.”
