Ranieri sure thinks so, the 64-year-old Italian is now a popular figure, because of his extraordinary coaching, fans can only hope that Leicester can fight off their rivals and write the final chapter to the most remarkable tale in Premier League history.
His,at first seemingly untypical ways, have definitely had a positive result on Leicester City‘s players, by maintaining a relaxed air throughout the season and offering his players pizza in exchange for clean sheets and deflecting pressure on to Leicester’s rivals.Who wouldn’t love a coach like that?!
First place had always been a dream for the man who was sacked by Greece after a home defeat by Faroe Islands in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.Ranieri also adds that it’s not simply “the pinnacle of the iceberg”, as he calls lethal strike pair Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, which are the EPL’s top and second top scorers. This is a complete team effort. If there were any weaknesses in Leicester’s armoury they might have surfaced on Saturday against Manchester City who were unbeaten in seven games before kick-off.
There would be delicious irony in Ranieri standing in front of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, the man who sacked him in 2004, as a Premier League champion.
Five points clear with 13 games left is a wonderful position to be in and there is no team playing better than Leicester City in the Premier League.
The Foxes forward Riyad Mahrez said: “We’re just going to keep dreaming, We’re going to fight for the title and see what we can do.
Leicester have shown that even the impossible could be made possible and my own prediction is that they’ll manage to stay at the top and win the EPL title.
