Not too many people believed in Leicester City

The dream of becoming English Champions at the start of the season was mere infatuation, but against all odds, today the kingpower stadium has become a home ground for the EPL Champions.Leicester City has a 132 year historywith an Italian manager Cladio Raneri who has been a coach for 28 years, but lifted his first major trophy for the first time in the club’s history in the 2015/2016 season. Leicester has also been rewarded for the EPL champions with a place in the champions league next season.

Over the years former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been described as the special one in Football but, how best can you describe Leicester City manager Claudio Raneri who today brought Leicester City from nowhere to becoming champions of England?

Yes so many might say Mourinho has won the champions League with FC Porto, Intermilan, including domestic titles with Chelsea, Intermilan, Real Madrid, FC Porto amongst others. But the fact is that all of those clubs are big clubs with established players with most of their squad estimated at 800 million pounds as against Leicester City squad estimated at much less.

A rare feat

Not too many managers have achieved what Claudio Raneri has achieved with little Liecester City. Most of the top football managers today do not take the risk of coaching smaller clubs without an established player e.g. a Pep Guardiola will leave Bayern munich for Manchester City, Loui Vangaoh will leave Netherland, for Manchester United Woop will leave Dortmund for Liverpool and a Mourinho will never accept offers from average clubs.

So can one really say those managers looking for ready-made players and ready-made clubs are special ones? Rather than a manager who against all odds brought a group of unknown players together and groomed them to become champions in a club also lacking the financial support to sign quality players.Leicester City gained promotion to the Epl in the 2014/2015 season but struggled to survive in their first season and in their second season shocked England to win their first ever Barclay’s premiershiptrophy.Claudio Ranieri had in the past coached Monaco, Juventus, Chelsea, and Greece.

But his major achievement is that of Leicester City being EPL Champions today.

Sometimes is not about the stiff competition but the consistency that you put in that brings the glory in the end. It also goes to show that even if you are not so good or have not won before and have not been winning you can still win if you persist, persevere, and strive for excellence.
