SEASON SNAPSHOT: Leicester defy massive odds to land Premier League title

What a season it was for the Leicester City Football Club.

The Foxes were sent out 5000-1 title hopefuls in August but finished the 2015/16 campaign sitting pretty at the top of the pops on 81 points, securing the premiership with three matches to play.

Claudio Ranieri seemingly masterminded a miracle after taking over from Nigel Pearson last summer, pulling off the greatest heist in Premier League history.

Riyad Mahrez was electric, Jamie Vardy provided a fairytale, N'Golo Kante was the muscle, Wes Morgan inspirational, Kasper Schmeichel a rock, Danny Drinkwater the puppet master….the list goes on.

History was made and may never be repeated.

Take a bow Leicester!

FROM THE BOSS

"Maybe now is too early to think what we have done.

“Maybe in one or two years it will be easier to understand, but now it is important to stay high in the world."
