Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno says he will not care if Leicester are in the Conference 10 years from now as he soaks up their amazing title win.

Pizzorno and band-mate Tom Meighan are two of Leicester's most famous fans and Italian boss Claudio Ranieri has spoken of how their single 'Fire' gees up his players during games.

The Leicester band are celebrating City's Premier League win with a Bank Holiday double-header gig at the King Power Stadium at the end of May and Pizzorno says he will be drinking in the glory for as long as he can.

He wrote in the Guardian: "Winning the Premier League? After that, even if we get relegated and we're in the Conference in 10 years, I won't care. We'll always have that.

"When Claudio Ranieri was appointed as manager last summer I was buzzing. With my family being Italian, I was thinking: 'This was going to be incredible.'

"My prediction was that we could finish in the top 10 and we could win a cup. But everybody thought I was insane. I started getting texts from my pals - which I've saved - saying: 'What's going on? What are they thinking?'

"I first started thinking we could qualify for the Champions League when we were still top at Christmas, then carried on picking up points in January. I thought that if we kept everyone fit until the end of the season, I didn't see why we couldn't finish in the top four.

"As for next season: we all live in Leicester so all my pals are coming in and we're having a Champions League draw party - it's already on the calendar."
