Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs has revealed his desire to become an NFL kicker when he retires from futbol. Fuchs is a 29 year old defender for Leicester City and would like to follow his dream.
“I have ambitions to become an NFL kicker,” he told Sky Sports. “Seriously. Depending on the managers in the NFL. If they want a footballer in their team but I am very much up for it.
“I know I can kick 60 yards or so or 65 yards field goal. Let’s see. Dreams can come true you know if you don’t dream you won’t reach anything.”
NFL teams are looking for accurate kickers, and a soccer player may be a better long term kicker for a team because of their accuracy.
