Claudio Ranieri was reduced to tears after Leicester beat Sunderland earlier today

The Foxes are striding towards an inexplicable Premier League title.

CLAUDIO RANIERI FINALLY allowed himself a moment to breathe it all in and shed a few tears as he made his way to the tunnel following Leicester City’s 2-0 victory at Sunderland.

The result moved the Foxes ten points clear temporarily at the top of the table with nearest challengers Tottenham kicking off later in the day.

In a 30-year managerial career, Ranieri has never won a top-flight title and as the season comes to a climax, everything is getting just a little bit real.

And something like this only makes the entire story more heartwarming, doesn’t it?
