Coach Ranieri relaxed as Leicester move closer to EPL title

Leicester, April 29 (IANS) Leicester City head coach Claudio Ranieri says he is relaxed despite the fact that they are just one win away from winning their maiden English Premier League football title.

Leicester are presently seven points clear at the top and a win next weekend against Manchester United will knock Tottenham Hotspur off the title race with three games left.

“I am relaxed because I watch my players. They train well, enjoy and help each other. It’s important to prepare well,” Ranieri was quoted as saying by goal.com on Thursday.

“Now is the real chance to win the title. Next season, you never know. It is once in a lifetime,” he said.

The coach said though they are very close to catching a dream, they still have to work hard.

“We are fighting to make this dream a reality, but it isn’t yet. I can understand all the happiness around the city, but we have to work.

“Sunday will be a very tough match and I have a lot of respect for (United head coach) Louis van Gaal and their fans. But we go with the same mentality. It is like the Hollywood movies. We want a happy ending.”
