5000-1 The Leicester City Story
Publisher: W. F. Howes
In August 2015 bookmakers priced Leicester at 5000-1 to win the Premier League—the same odds as Elvis being found alive. On 2 May 2016, Leicester won, to ecstatic celebrations in the city and around the world. Leicester Mercury ’s chief football writer, Rob Tanner, relives the great escape of 2015 to the curtain-closer at Stamford Bridge. Tanner’s book tells the inside story of Leicester City’s triumph—and the players who under Claudio Ranieri’s inspired leadership became the most unlikely champions in football history.
