Foxes Italian manager Ranieri intends to keep his focus on the league title and a spot in the 2016 – 2017 Champions League Tournament on course and encourages his side that was tipped for relegation to become champions and later to play with freedom once their top-flight bid for the Premier League trophy is safety secured.
French central midfielder N’Golo Kante quoted Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri talking about the end of the season battle.
“As soon as safety from relegation was achieved, he told us that anything else that we achieve from that point onwards was a bonus and that we should not be scared,” quoted Kante. “Nor should we hesitate about the situation that we were in.:
“We are carefree and we are having an exceptional season that we want to finish well. That is why we all ¬defend for the team, Kante continued. “We have a season to finish. As long as a club doesn’t approach me directly, I don’t pay too much attention to anything else.”
Rumor has it that a string of Foxes stars are eyeing pay-raises, and boss Ranieri may enjoy having his salary doubled at the end of the season as a reward for a Premier League top tier finish.
Some of Ranieri’s table-topping side are hoping to be given lucrative new contracts once they have secured the league championship and qualification for a spot in the Champions League.
Leicester City’s superstar striker Jamie Vardy has already signed a new contract worth £80,000-a-week until 2019, setting a bench-mark for the other Leicester footballers’ contracts once Champions League qualification is assured.
Sixty-four year old Ranieri is on a three-year deal worth £1.5m-a-year. Obviously Ranieri wants to stay on at Leicester long term to continue his successful run with the club.
Reportedly former Chelsea manager, Ranieri is on course to get a pay-raise from £1.5m a year to over £3m per season as the Foxes' top brass plan to tie him down with a new contract after his remarkable 2015-16 campaign. The Foxes are willing to remove a get-out clause in Ranieri’s contract in case Leicester went down this season.
Of note is that new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will be the highest paid Premier League manager next season with a deal of about £16m-a-year. Veteran Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger earns £8m-a-year at Arsenal.
Thai billionaire moneybags Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha owns Leicester City and is club chairman.
The smart businessman bought the under-performing Foxes back in 2010. Nigel Pearson was hired as manager in 2011 and led the club back to the Premier League in 2014. Claudio Ranieri was hired in 2015. Leicester were down at the bottom of the Premier League in December 2015 after 29 games; but then moved up to the top inspired by Ranieri who has never won a major title in his 30 year career. Bets are on that the Foxes will win the league title this season.
