Claudio Ranieri Faces Fresh Challenge as Italian Tries to Hold Leicester City's Champions Together

The Premier League was the first top-flight title Ranieri has lifted, so the forthcoming season is as alien to him as it is to the Leicester supporters. The first assignment will be to persevere through a trying pre-season of speculation and counter-speculation to portray a togetherness and keep producing the fairytale football that shaped the most compelling narrative last season.

I'm a little confused about Leicester. On the one hand, Musa, Mendy and Zieler are nothing more than decent Europa League signings. Normally, a title-winning side would be torn apart for these kind of transfers...

Leicester Fans Deserve Better Than N'Golo Kanté

N'Golo Kanté, thank you for the memories, but good riddance - this squad cannot carry any avaricious snakes. You would have gone down as a legend at Leicester City, unarguably as one of the greatest in the 132 years of the club's existence, but you have bottled it.

Claudio Ranieri Has Been Playing a Game All Season Long - And He's Masterminded it to Perfection

Oli Gamp | Posted 11.05.2016 | UK Sport

Ranieri said he has gone from being the 'tinkerman' to the 'thinkerman', and it sums up his season perfectly. His whole career has been based on adjusting his teams, but this time he kept the team the same and adjusted himself. It's beautiful in it's simplicity, but brilliant in its execution.

Leicester City and the Mayor of London

It might seem foolish to talk about a football competition and a democratic election as if they were comparable. Maybe I've extrapolated a certain mawkish sentimentality from the simple facts. Maybe. But if they only other option is certainty of failure, I'll take possibility of the improbable, thanks.

Leicester on Top of the World

With the success of the Foxes, the city itself will at last get the recognition it deserves. When people across the world spin a globe, they will point to Leicester; when they visit the United Kingdom, they may now make the journey to the centre of world club football, the King Power stadium. Leicester's motto, 'Semper Eadem' means 'Always the Same'. This is a rare moment to disagree with history, but things are not the same in Leicester anymore, and they will never be again.

Modern Football Needs More Leicesters, But Not in the Premier League

Jonathan Brick | Posted 04.05.2016 | UK Sport

One thing is certain. There will be more Leicesters, but maybe not another Premier League season that Leicester had in 2015/6. The beauty, of course, is that the only certainty is uncertainty. Such is the brilliance, for all its troubles, of modern football.

Labour have a pedigree of winning the biggest prize, in our case a General Election, in Leicester's the Premiership. If fact we've won 9 since 1945, for Leicester this is their first. Labour should have the winning expectations of a Celtic or Rangers, not a rank outsider.

On the other side of the coin, spending big and adding too many new faces could just as easily wreck everything that has been built. But again, as things stand, the current Leicester side has a limited shelf life. What it really comes down to is how this season and its significant achievements are viewed within the club. Is this the pinnacle, or is it only the beginning?
