Claudio Ranieri is everyone’s favorite manager.
And not just because “Dilly-ding, dilly-dong” will be added to the English dictionary very soon.
The Italian boss, 64, has guided Leicester City to the 2015-16 Premier League title — the first top-flight trophy in their 132-year history — in just his first season in charge at the King Power Stadium.

He has guided the 5000-1 shots at the start of the season to an incredible title win. At the start of the campaign he was the favorite to be the first manager to be fired this season.
After spending four years at Chelsea from 2000-04 where he was ruthlessly sacked by Russian owner Roman Abramovich who didn’t believe he could win trophies, Ranieri has won the biggest one of them all in his first season back in England. Remarkable.

The veteran boss has now won his first-ever league title in his long and distinguished managerial career against all the odds. He is, without doubt, the mastermind behind Leicester’s remarkable title win. There are calls for Ranieri to be knighted by the Queen of England and given what his team has achieved, why not?
Despite his obviously skill as a manager, he is also a genuinely nice bloke when it comes to interacting with fans and the media.
The video below looks at some of the most memorable moments this season from the lovable Italian.
