Claudio Ranieri has put pen to paper on a new Leicester City contract, the new four-year deal tying him to the club until 2020 as the manager becomes the latest member of the club’s title-winning staff to be rewarded with a long-term offer. 

The club have already tied the likes of Jamie Vardy and Kaspar Schmeichel down with long-term deals of their own as they look to secure the club’s future at the club table following last season’s astonishing Premier League campaign.

Speaking in a club statement after signing, Ranieri said: “From the moment I talked to the owners about their vision for Leicester City, I knew it was something I wanted to be part of for a long time. The energy that exists at this Club – from the owners and the staff, to the players and supporters – is something very special. 

“I am very happy and proud that I will be part of it for years to come. Last season, that spirit and our hard work helped us to achieve something magical. If we can continue to work hard, maintain our passion and continue to fight with all our hearts, I am sure we can continue to be successful together.”

Club vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha added: “Twelve months ago, we brought to Leicester City a man whose knowledge and experience, we felt, could lead us into the next phase of our long-term plan. What he would go on to help us achieve, in the time we have achieved it, has been beyond anything we could have anticipated. 

“Claudio’s qualities, both as a man and as a coach, have been very clear since the moment he arrived – qualities that have helped Leicester City to progress on every level. We have strong foundations from which to keep moving our Club forward and I’m delighted that Claudio will continue to be part of that journey.”
