It’s been described as the greatest fairytale English football has ever seen.
Leicester City have won the English Premier League, beating odds of 5000/1. And what makes this tale even more remarkable is the immediate impact made by manager Claudio Ranieri.
Rewind a mere 11 months and Leicester lie bottom of true EPL and Nigel Pearson has been sacked as coach.
Pundits are at a loss to explain the sudden success of the squad, but many point to the Italian sexagenarian’s eccentric charisma, his experience, and knack for getting the best out of his key players including Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, and N’Golo Kante.
it’s been reported that funds will be made available for Ranieri this summer while the majority of the squad are in line for lucrative new deals.
Who would now bet against them repeating this feat?
