Claudio Ranieri was named the League Managers' Association (LMA) manager of the year on Monday after leading 5 000-1 outsiders Leicester City to an improbable Premier League title.

The 64-year-old is only the second non-British or Irish manager to win the accolade after Frenchman Arsene Wenger won it with Arsenal in 2002 and 2004.

The award capped a day of celebration for the Italian as he joined the players in a victory parade on an open-top bus through the streets of Leicester in front of about 250 000 ecstatic...........Read More click

Leicester City's incredible Premier League fairytale reached a joyous crescendo as thousands of fans turned the city blue while revelling in the club's title parade on Monday.

For two weeks since Claudio Ranieri's side were crowned one of the most unlikely champions in English football history, the city of Leicester hasn't stop celebrating and the party climaxed beneath sunny skies 24 hours after the Foxes finished their campaign with a draw at Chelsea.

After starting the season as 5 000-1 outsiders for the title, Leicester defied the odds in stunning fashion and being hailed by a crowd of over 100 000 was a fitting finale for Ranieri's squad and the club's Thai chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who soaked up the celebrations with his family.

"The city is here. It's something special. I'm very glad," Ranieri said.

"This is because the team played with their soul and their hearts. The people understood...Read More

45  Forum / The Buzz Central / Five best games in Premier league 2015-16 season on: 16-05-2016 03:11 PM
With another dramatic Premier League season at an end, we look back at the five best matches of the 2015-16 campaign:

Manchester City 1 Leicester City 3
Rarely can a goal from Sergio Aguero have been greeted with such apathy, but the sound of the Manchester City star's irrelevant late strike barely being acknowledged by the chastened home support told the story of a defining day in the title race.

Leicester arrived at Eastlands in February regarded in some quarters as a novelty act, whose time at the top would soon be over once a superpower like City had finished with them.

But by the end of a bravura Leicester display, it was clear Claudio Ranieri's side were more than capable of completing their fairytale title bid. Robert Huth met Riyad Mahrez's free-kick to give the Foxes an early lead and Mahrez doubled the lead himself with a cool finish before German defender Huth sealed the points with another header to leave City stunned.

Norwich City 4 Liverpool 5
Arguably the most dramatic match of...Read More

Rafael Benitez admits his 'heart says yes' to staying at Newcastle as he leans towards pledging his long-term future to the club despite their relegation from the Premier League.

Benitez held talks with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley after the 5-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday that denied the visitors a second place finish on an emotional final day as St James' Park bade farewell to the top-flight for at least 15 months.

Fans serenaded Benitez for the 90 minutes, urging him not to trigger the relegation clause in his three-year contract and to instead remain to lead the bid to seal an immediate return from the Championship next season.

The 56-year-old Spaniard spoke in glowing terms about the club afterwards, before holding face-to-face talks with sports retail billionaire Ashley, who watched from the directors' box for the first time this year.

"The game was emotional," Benitez said. "It's not easy to leave a club like this, and I think my heart is saying yes. It was a great.....Read More

Jurgen Klopp is ready to turn his full attention to Liverpool's first European final for nine years after the Reds finished their Premier League campaign with a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion.

Liverpool boss Klopp admitted his senior players were already thinking ahead to Wednesday's Europa League final against holders Sevilla in Basel before Sunday's domestic finale.

So Klopp made 11 changes at the Hawthorns, with most of the men likely to start the final left on Merseyside to rest while Liverpool's understudies collected a point thanks to Jordon Ibe's fine equaliser after Salomon Rondon's opener.

"We made a few changes - 11," smiled Klopp. "It absolutely made sense because it's perfectly clear you cannot play here with 50 per cent concentration.

Manchester United are in line to become the first British club to earn at least half a billion pounds in revenue in a single year, even if participation in the lucrative Champions League next season still hangs in the balance.

United head into their final Premier League game at home to Bournemouth on Sunday, in fifth place and two points behind local rivals Manchester City.

Only the top four clubs in the English top flight are guaranteed a place in the elite Champions League and failure to get into the tournament will only add to the pressure on manager Louis van Gaal, whose future with the Old Trafford club has been the subject of intense speculation this season. NAIJABET.COM

But none of that stopped United, who face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month, from announcing a record underlying pre-tax third quarter profits of £44.9 million ($64.7 million, 57.04 million euros) on Friday.
