Claudio Ranieri explains when he started to believe Leicester could win Premier League


Supreme confidence, borne out of defeat. Claudio Ranieri says he first believed Leicester City were capable of winning the Premier League on Valentine’s Day, when his team had just lost 2-1 against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News HQ to review the football year, Ranieri said 2016 was the best year of his life, and fulfilled an ambition he had held for over 30 years.

“I’ve never won a title, and so for this reason [it] is the best,” Ranieri said.
