Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri hailed his side’s heart and soul for galvanising them to a historic league title.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Ranieri was delighted and explained the emotions he went through last night.

“I feel good, I feel good you can imagine,

“I was home to watch the match. I had lunch with my mother then I came back with our plane and arrived at 7 o’clock and at 8 o’clock, I watched the match. The emotions were at the maximum.

“I don’t know the secret. I think the players, their heart and soul won it.”

He also said how much it meant to him to finally land a coveted league title for the first time in his managerial career.

“It means the job is good. I am very, very happy now because if I won this title at the beginning of my career, maybe I would have forgotten it by now.

“No, now I am a very, very old man and I can feel much better.”

Ranieri said that the title was for everyone associated with the City; and said he plans to keep the team together – as long as they are happy.

“I say every time I am very happy for the fans, the chairman, and everybody, for all of the Leicester community.

“We want to improve. We want to improve a lot.

“We want to continue to build, the foundation is solid, next season we have to fight.”
