Coach Claudio Ranieri comments on the last home game of the season as his team got another win:

“It’s fantastic. The people are unbelievable. Thank you to them because they pushed us all season. I was concentrated to be calm but of course inside I am very happy. It’s unbelievable. 
I think it was an amazing moment for me because I’m not the youngest and there is another test now. You are the champion of the Premier League and it’s something special for everybody. I’ve lost the finals in England, Spain and Italy but for me to this this is something special. 
“In my career I always thought sooner or later I’d win a title. This is a crazy season and we had fantastic consistency all season. I believe at the top it’s important to have a very good owner after the players and manager. When I saw them In Austria (during) I saw a very good dressing room. They work so hard and they are friends and I tried to blend them.”
