Claudio Ranieri

London, Aug 10 (IANS) English Premier League champions Leicester City has signed a new four-year contract with 65-year-old Italian coach Claudio Ranieri, the football club announced on its website on Wednesday.

Since July, 2015, Ranieri guided Leicester City to one of the most stunning triumphs in the English Premier League’s history.

“From the moment I talked to the owners about their vision for Leicester City, I knew it was something I wanted to be part of for a long time. The energy that exists at this Club — from the owners and the staff, to the players and supporters — is something very special. I am very happy and proud that I will be part of it for years to come,” Ranieri said in a club statement.

“Last season, that spirit and our hard work helped us to achieve something magical. If we can continue to work hard, maintain our passion and continue to fight with all our hearts, I am sure we can continue to be successful together,” Ranieri added.
