It is a fact that would take a lot of time to register in one's mind. With odds of 5000/1 to win the Premier league title at the start of the season and most of the so called experts predicting them to fail under their new manager, it has hardly surprising to see the disbelief at the fact that Leicester City are the new Premier league champions.

Leicester City win Premier League title after Tottenham draw at Chelsea
It is ironical to state that former Premier league champions Chelsea played their heart out in order to salvage a draw against Tottenham to make Leicester the new champions. It was a tribute to their former manager, who was ridiculed in his last spell as a manager in the Premier league.

From being sacked as Greece manager to winning the Premier league title with relegation contenders in the space of few months, Ranieri has completed one of the most remarkable achievements in sporting history.

Ranieri certainly brought about certain changes to his management style, which was crucial to Leicester winning the title. The Italian was known as the Tinkerman during his spell at Chelsea, due to the various changes he made to the starting line up on a regular basis.

However, this season, he has made only around 27 changes to the starting line up and has kept a very steady eleven throughout the campaign. Former Chelsea midfielder Scott Parker, who played under the Italian when at Chelsea, also pointed out this important fact.

This is an event where David has certainly beaten Goliath, where the bridesmaid has finally become the bride. It may happen that Leicester may falter next season. But even the most ardent Leicester fans would not care about next season. This is a time for them to embrace this event, to get inspired by it and revel in it until it has sunk in completely.
