Brendan Rodgers believes that Claudio Ranieri gave hope to fans of every club in the world with his title win with Leicester. Ranieri returns to Leicester for the first time since February 2017, nine months after he guided them to the Premier League title. They were 5000-1 to win the title that season. Claudio Ranieri left the club the following season with the club one point above the relegation zone. The Italian was named as the Watford manager last month.
“As well as winning the Premier League it would be the feeling, the feeling the team gave not only Leicester supporters but those around the world,” Brendan Rodgers said talking about Claudio Ranieri. “What that gave was the hope that it can be done and it’s possible to do it. That gave belief not just to Leicester but to every club. To see him win his first title as a manager was special as well. He will always be held in the highest regard here.”
“Just watching the whole story and the joy it gave people, it was a special, iconic, season. In any sport it is probably one of the greatest that ever was.” he added. “That story is iconic and his association with Leicester, they have a bond forever. The supporters will always be eternally thankful to him and everything he did that season. That experience in isolation was incredible, I don’t think anyone expected Leicester to win the league.”
