Leicester City’s historic Premier League winning season is something that took everyone by surprise. Even the own supporters and players of the club weren’t expecting to rise above every other club in the English League and become the new champions of England but it happened.
Claudio Ranieri was one of the main figures behind this extraordinary season and the Italian coach himself has stated it still baffles him as to how exactly his team was able to overcome everything in their path and win their first Premier League title in the history of the club.
When the 64 year old coach was asked about his thoughts of the previous season as well as the upcoming one, the Italian manager replied by saying:
“At the beginning our goal was to be safe. Slowly, the team got confidence, it was a very, very amazing performance, match by match, day by day, they work so hard and we improved a lot…
I think one of our keys was to be consistent during all the season. Believe in yourself without thinking winning, losing, drawing, it wasn’t important. It was important to fight every match.”
Manchester United and Chelsea are the only clubs in the history of the Premier League that have been able to successively win the top tier English League.
Leicester City now has the task of defending their title but Claudio Ranieri is well aware that this will be an extremely thing to accomplish and that the upcoming season is going to be even harder.
Whether or not Claudio Ranieri and his squad are able to defend their title is something that remains to be seen but it will certainly be one of the most exciting and anticipated seasons in the history of the Premier League as new competitors are lining up.
