Girona is being hailed as "the new Leicester"

 

Most football fans can see Girona's stunning rise to the top tier of Spain's La Liga as a "magic" start to the season. But former Spain and Barcelona striker Luis Garcia is not one of them.

Garcia says that Girona are not at the top of the table by chance and that they can win the title of Spanish champion. He even praises it as "the new Leicester", recalling the unexpected success of the English team in the Premier League.
