Leicester City groundsmen cut spectacular club badge into King Power pitch

The Leicester City groundsman is at it again. 

Aside from their miraculous title-winning players, Leicester City's ground staff earned plenty of admirers last season for their intricate pitch patterns.

A disappointing campaign so far has seen head groundsman John Ledwidge be a tad more conservative with the lawnmower.

But with the Foxes now safe from relegation, the wacky King Power pitch designs have returned with the most impressive effort yet.

Leicester City play host to Tottenham and then Bournemouth in their final two games of the season and Ledwidge has cut the club's crest into the centre of the pitch to mark the team's final two games as Premier League champions.

The latest design was celebrated by fans online who paid tribute to the creativity of the club's ground staff over the past two seasons.

"Massive shout-out to them for their constant attention to the pitch and keeping it to such a high standard all year round," wrote one fan on a Leicester City forum.

"The patterns over the last few years have been superb. Time and time again they excel themselves and just produce stunning pieces of work."

"Underappreciated, I think they are the best and most creative pitch staff in the league and probably one of the best in the world," wrote another fan.
