Claudio Ranieri is impossible to hate. Not only has he masterminded Leicester City’s miracle year, one of the most improbable underdog seasons in the history of sports, but he’s done so with such easy-going charm, shrugging off pressure and always deflecting credit to his players. It’s won him as many fans as has the team’s title run itself.

Still, in reality everyone knows that Ranieri and his relaxed yet sophisticated managing style are enormous factors in why Leicester are three points away from the Premier League title. No one knows this more than Leicester fans, and in this video, some of them get to tell the man just how much they appreciate what he’s done. His reaction to his fans’ support will, if possible, only make you pull for him more.
