First of all, a hearty congratulations to Claudio Ranieri and Leicester City Football Club for winning the Barclays Premier League in an emphatic fashion. Who would have thought that?
The Italian Manager has already secured a ‘Legend’ status in the footballing world as he and his side did a miracle. Ranieri managed different clubs around Europe and had a different outcome every time. July 13th 2015 was the date when Leicester announced that the Italian will be taking over the Foxes.
Their emotional campaign summed up in tears as Chelsea managed to hold Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last night and the Foxes were named the Champions of England for the first time in their history.
The Italian is surely a true gentleman; his calmness and his reactions in the games prove it right away. The game against the Devils in which, a win for the Foxes would have guaranteed them the title is the best example I’ve seen. As the Devils took the lead in the 8th minute, he remained cool and composed and urged his players to move forward and just 9 minutes from the first goal, Leicester came back in the game.
It was just the belief, they believed in their players, they believed in their manager and the fairy tale took them to the Heaven. The team is not just about Vardy or Mahrez, the team is about the fans, their coaching staff and everything in the King Power Stadium.
Leicester were the title favourite since past 3-4 months not just mathematically, they were the world’s favourite. The entire globe wanted to see them wearing the English crown at the end of the season. Claudio! What a man. Took the underdogs and made them the champions. Not every manager can do that in the sport.
I’m not shocked, I’m not even surprised; I’m overwhelmed by the club’s triumph. What a season they have had. Soon they will be receiving the Guard of Honour from Everton and Chelsea and that would be a completely different emotion to express.
Well, it is hard not to love Ranieri, the job he did for the team was emphatic. Jamie Vardy’s late career success wouldn’t have been possible if there was no Raneiri. Even the 31-year-old Jamaican, Wes Morgan, who was very bulky last season has been a delight to watch. Well, the list will go on and on about the players.
I do believe, that it’s too early to decide the fate of this outstanding club and that’s why, it’s the best time to simply celebrate the impossible dream all together.
