To kick off a weekend of EPL football action, Leicester City stomped Southampton 9-0 last night in a game that tied the record for largest margin of victory in premier league history.
Who was in net for that Leicester City side that allowed them to tie that record by keeping a clean sheet? None other than Danish brick wall Kasper Schmeichel, whose father, the legendary Peter Schmeichel, also did just that for Man U back in 1995 against a bum ass Ipswich side. I mean god damn, talk about a statistic, what are the odds that something like this happens? 1 in 6,000,000,000,000,000? I assume the Schmeichel house was made entirely out of brick to instill that mentality into a young Kasper growing up, turning him into the spitting image of his father, blonde hair and blocked shots galore, I mean remember shit he was doing in the World Cup?
The most brazy part about the above stat is that it’s not the first time this father son duo has done something like this, via Kasper’s Wikipedia:
On 2 May 2016, he won the Premier League title at 29 years of age, the same age and same calendar day when his father won Manchester United’s first such title in 1993. On both occasions, the respective teams (Manchester United and Leicester City) clinched the titles by nearest rivals (Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur) not winning.The Schmeichels became the only biological father and son to win the Premier League, as well as being in the same position to do so.
I’m over here having a beer with my Dad and they’re over there winning EPL titles and shit, as is their family tradition. True Danish royalty.
