Leicester City complete Cinderella Story to win title

 

 

Leicester City this week beat the odds, as the 5000-1 outsiders were declared Premier League Champions, following Tottenham Hotspur’s draw with Chelsea on Monday evening – 2 May.

Manager Claudio Ranieri’s side gathered together to watch what would become the deciding game in the title, with two games to play, before celebrations broke out following Eden Hazard’s equaliser.

The 64-year-old Italian told the club website: “I’m so proud. I’m happy for my players, for the Chairman, for the staff at Leicester City, all our fans and the Leicester community.

“It’s an amazing feeling and I’m so happy for everyone”.

Leicester, who were relegation candidates last season, had remained outside favourites to win the leagues despite topping the table ever since their 3-0 win over Stoke on 23 January.

Captain Wes Morgan “I’ve never known a spirit like the one between these boys, we’re like brothers.

“People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong”.

Morgan added: “Saturday can’t come quickly enough. I can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy”.

Leicester will be handed the League trophy at their next home game against Everton on Saturday 7 May.
