London: Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri shed tears of joy after his team beat Sunderland to move closer to the English Premier League (EPL) title and dedicated the win to the club's supporters.
Striker Jamie Vardy scored a brace as Leicester won 2-0 away to Sunderland on Sunday to go seven points clear at the top of the EPL charts. With five games to go, Leicester seem to be well on their way to clinch their first ever EPL title.
"It is fantastic when you see before the match, an old lady with a Leicester shirt outside the stadium. I say: 'Unbelievable. They come from Leicester to support us.' This is my emotion. It is fantastic. I was on the bus. I saw them, unbelievable, and I want to say thank you for the support. They are dreaming and we want to continue to dream," Ranieri said after the match.
"Its amazing just. I want to say thank you to everybody who came," he added. "It's difficult to say how I feel inside but I'm not complaining. Nobody could have believed we would be in this position. But now we have to fight and fight. We must stay concentrated. This is an amazing season for us, for our fans, for our chairman, for me, for everyone. Our goal was to be safe."
