Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has finally admited that the title race is indeed in their hands and that they fight to win their first ever Premier League title in the clubs history.
Ranieri’s team moved eight points clear at the top with Tottenham playing Bournemouth on Sunday and the title race now looks one-sided as the teams enter the final seven games of the season. Post his 1-0 win at Selhurst Park Ranieri was quoted as saying:
“I don’t know if it’s important or not important, everything is in our hands. We have to push, it’s not important the others (sic). No one is helping us, we have to do our job. If someone goes over us, well done, they are the champions, we continue to fight.
“No (we won’t be disappointed if we don’t win) I am happy with this season. I remember the start of the season. The goal was save the team. Now we are in Europa League and we are very close to achieve Champions League. Our fans are singing, this is fantastic, we have to stay calm and concentrate. These seven matches are open.”
