Leicester crowned champions of England
Leicester City is the 2015-16 Premier League champion
The domination of the Foxes this season is undoubtely one of the top perfomances in the history of the Premier League. After electing Mahrez as the best player of the season, Leicester City wins his first league title with two more games to be played. To refresh memories, the club finished at the 14th place last season and were 5000/1 favorites to win the title this season.
The emergeance of Mahrez and Vardy as the two locomotives of the team and solid performances from the rest of the squad sustained this incredible run all season long.
Here are some quotes from the players:
Captain Wes Morgan:
“It’s the best feeling of my career and I couldn’t be prouder that it’s as part of this team. Everyone’s worked so hard for this, nobody believed we could do it, but here we are, Premier League champions and deservedly so.
“I’ve never known a spirit like the one between these boys, we’re like brothers. People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong. This season’s been a continuation of that. We’ve built on the momentum, but I don’t think anyone believed it would come to this.
Coach Claudio Ranieri:
“I’m so proud. I’m happy for my players, for the Chairman, for the staff at Leicester City, all our fans and the Leicester community. It’s an amazing feeling and I’m so happy for everyone.
“I never expected this when I arrived. I’m a pragmatic man, I just wanted to win match after match and help my players to improve week after week. Never did I think too much about where it would take us.
“The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible. Every game they fight for each other and I love to see this in my players. They deserve to be champions.”
