Leicester hero Kasper Schmeichel follows dad Peter's title path

Relive Leicester City's remarkable story, where 'a group of misfits' came together to defy the odds on their way to the Premier League's top prize.

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel played the proud dad when he changed his Twitter bio to "father of a Premier League winner" and also revealed that his son Kasper had repeated his feat to the day!

Kasper, 29, was only four years old when his dad joined United in August 1991, as Sir Alex Ferguson's men laid the foundations for an era of dominance.

Now the goalkeeper has gone from attending games at Old Trafford as a youngster, wearing a replica United goalkeeping kit, to becoming a Premier League winner in his own right with Leicester City.

But it gets even better than that, as the Denmark international -- who kept 15 clean sheets this season -- did so on May 2, at the age of 29, without playing a game. Something his father managed in exactly the same circumstances in 1993 with United.

Wow. Liverpool, of course, had been the most successful club in England up to that point. Since their last title in 1990 though, a Manchester United goalkeeper and his son have gone on to become champions.
