It is said that, “winners don’t quit”, and others say, “if you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail”. But those who migrate on a long journey, they usually put everything in oder to make their journey successful.
This is what happened in the top flight football in England. Leicester City were considered the underdogs in the Barclays Premier League, but they proved this statement wrong after clinching the most precious trophy in the club’s football history.
Leicester’s story has captured the football and sports world’s imagination, “a story of the underdog triumphing”.
It was something that seemed improbable and impossible at the beginning of the season, but against all odds, Leicester City were crowned Premier League Champions of England.
It was a moment many thought would never come, but the Foxes beat all the odds to claim a first top flight crown in the club’s 132 year history. Its a season which gave supporters phrases like, “dilly ding, dilly dong”, and a season where odds were 5000 to 1 of Leicester winning the league.
The current champions celebrated their coronation as champions with victory over Everton two weeks ago on a day of elation at the King Power Stadium. Thousands of supporters flocked to the stadium simply to take part in the carnival to mark Leicester’s achievements.
These celebrations were not held only in England, but world wide rejoiced in their teams triumphant and defining moments. The mood of the supporters was high and uncontrollable after seeing David beating Goliath with a single brow.
The Foxes came into the season well prepared under the very neglected coach, Claudio Ranieri who brought changes into the team. The teams performance from the beginning of the season showed that their goal was to claim that precious accolade they have been longing for.
Indeed, the striking force led by Jamie Vardy showed that they are hungry for a trophy. He kept his pace and banged goals which made the team keep their position on top of the log until the end of the season.
The reigning champions won the title after securing 81 points from 38 games and they will represent England in the UEFA Champions league competition.
Are we going to see the same Leicester City in the coming season..? Let us wait and see…
