Competition: Premier League
Market: Claudio Ranieri to be named LMA Manager of the Year
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Leicester City will top the Premier League table for Christmas, and while manager Claudio Ranieri has been credited with the Foxes incredible start to the season, the Italian coach could well be given recognition by the LMA for City’s surprise lofty position. Ranieri is already being touted to win the Manager of the Year award, and few could argue so far.
There are other worthy contenders such as Alan Pardew and Mauricio Pochettino, but nobody realistically tipped Leicester to be chasing the title when the season start. Ranieri has been calm about the side’s excellent form, but is still trying to temper expectations. He’s keen to take the pressure off his side, but their consistency makes it an impossible task.
Leicester leading the way in December was beyond anyone’s predictions for this season, and while players have been singled out for their outstanding form, the manager certainly shouldn’t be left out. Ranieri has the side full of confidence and playing without fear each week. He’s getting the best from the attacking stars, and as a result is 10/11 with Bet 365 to be named LMA Manager of the Year.
