Hard for Leicester to repeat Premier League glory,insists Ranieri


Johannesburg: Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri believes it will be hard for his club to repeat their Premier League glory, saying England’s big clubs will continue to dominate the next two decades.

Leicester’s squad was assembled for 57 million euros, which is the cheapest of any current team in the top half of the table.

Despite that, Leicester went on to win their first-ever Premier League title in the club’s 132-year history after Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

Ranieri, however, felt that this season was an anomaly and that it would take another 10 to 20 years before it can be repeated, Sport24 reported.

The 64-year-old manager pointed out that the rich teams would continue to pick up the best players, who could easily hand the club with victory.

Leicester will grab a staggering 93 million pounds from winning the title and will also receive an additional 30 million pounds for securing a spot in the Champions League.

Leicester, who escaped relegation last season and started the current season as 5000-1 outsiders, overcame their underdogs tag by winning the title in one of the most remarkable seasons of the football history.(ANI)
