Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs hasn’t been bashful about his future. Could the above photo be something we see on a different field?

Yes, he’s contracted to the Foxes for a few more seasons, but the Austrian back spends a lot of time in the United States with his kids.

And the 30-year-old Fuchs has said he’s interested in playing for the New York Cosmos of the NASL in his future.

Last April, however, Fuchs claimed he could hit a 60-yard field goal and harbored dreams of playing in the NFL.

On Thursday, came video of Fuchs taking his shots at long field goals, hitting from 50-yards before missing a 60-yarder wide left.

Watch the video here, as Fuchs talks shops at kicks the pigskin with London-born longtime New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora.
