Former Ireland full-back Paddy Mulligan expects Leicester to challenge again next season provided they keep this season's team together.

The ex-Chelsea, Crystal Palace and West Brom player believes it would have been a "travesty" if they hadn't secured the Premier League title this season. 

"It's going to be very difficult because they've shown their hand now. But I do expect them to be challenging and what I would like to see happen with Leicester is that all of those players don't get sidetracked and remain with Leicester and make Leicester the big club," Paddy said on this week's Rewind podcast.

"Don't be bothered about Man United or Liverpool or any place else. You really go ahead and carve your name at Leicester City Football Club and make a real statement that Leicester are going places - the financial backing is there by all accounts. I'm not sure some of these players would fit in to any of the so-called top clubs. So you go and make Leicester City a top club, lads."
