LEICESTER City’s Premiership title run will serve as inspiration to all sports teams for years to come.
The odds of 5000/ 1, the longest to win in sports history, serve as a reminder to all that anything is possible.
The nature of the win is even more impressive when you consider what Leicester were up against. The lopsided nature of the league has been highlighted in the past by the virtue of only five other clubs having won the Premiership title since its inception in 1992/ 93.
Money and (perceived) advantages in talent were not an issue for Leicester who took their season one game at a time.
Claudio Ranieri, the victorious manager, set his players short term targets. First it was 40 points to avoid relegation, second was to achieve a European spot, then a Champions League spot and finally, the title. Everyone’s second team has now given hope to everyone’s first team. Dreams do come true.
