I will stay with Leicester even if everything goes wrong: Ranieri

Leicester, Dec 19 (IANS) Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has promised the club’s owners that he would not quit even if they are relegated from the English Premier League (EPL).

Leicester are currently at the top of the EPL table with 35 points from 16 matches.

“Look I didn’t believe when I signed my contract that in December we are top of the league,” Ranieri was quoted as saying by goal.com on Saturday.

“But two things were very, very fantastic for me. One, to hear from my owner that he wants in the next two years to maintain Leicester in the Premier League, then grow up and try to achieve the top places.”

“The other is when the son asked me, ‘If everything goes wrong, you stay with us in the Championship?’ I said, Yes I will stay here.”

“So the father and the son wanted to know (on each possibility). This was amazing for me because there was a balance – there was a big project but also they wanted me to stay even is everything is wrong. It was important for me to understand this philosophy.”
