What surprises me is that no other PL club took thier chance with Ranieri, always seen him as a decent principled man with not a bad word to say about anyone.
Hope they get the league if we don't
Well, Ranieri has managed a few big clubs in his career (post-Abramovich Chelsea, Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Roma, Inter Milan, Monaco) and has hardly anything to show for it, in terms of trophies. His managerial career will soon complete 30 years and apart from lower league trophies and promotions, all he has won is a Copa del Rey with Valencia and a Coppa Italia with Fiorentina - that is all.
So I entirely understand why no club aiming to win stuff would actually hire him these days.
Which obviously takes nothing away from the fantastic work he has been doing with this Leicester squad and, as much as I still don't think they will the league, I'd love if they did! It's certainly refreshing to see them, as well as Palace and Watford and other smaller clubs, doing well in the league and changing things up a bit.
