Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has revealed that his players are still not talking about the title after their 1-0 away win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, despite then going eight points clear at the top of the table, according to reports from the Mirror.
A goal from Riyad Mahrez, his 16th of the season, sealed another important victory for Ranieri’s men, which edges them closer to being one of the most shocking Premier League champions in history.
However, despite their successful campaign, the players had no discussion in regards to winning the title, with Ranieri claiming that all they wanted ahead of the international break is an extra day off.
“They ask me if I can give them one day more — big bandits,” he said.
The Italian was appointed as the Foxes boss in the summer, with many believing that Ranieri would do well to keep Leicester in the English top flight.
But his team has completely defied logic, coming from odds of 5000/1 to win the league at the start of the campaign to an average of 8/15 today.
