Sampdoria coach Ranieri: How I guided Leicester players to Premier League title

Sampdoria coach Claudio Ranieri has spoken of managing Leicester City's players during their title winning campaign.

Ranieri admits the 2016 Premier League title triumph was about keeping the players calm as they hunted down the crown.

"So I wanted to set small goals, little by little. First avoid the drop, then fight for Europe and then fight for the title. I did this way until the end, I always wanted to de-dramatise.
