Ranieri Predicts Rich Teams Will Win For Next Two Decades

share on:

Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri is certain the rich clubs in the EPL will return to dominance in the next decade or two.

Leicester, who were slated for relegation, were crowned champions of England, following second-placed Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

Ranieri is not letting the fairytale victory get to his head, anticipating it as a one-off.

“Big money makes big teams and usually big teams win,” the 64-year-old is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

“Now we can say only 99 per cent of the time. Next season will be the same and for the next 10 or 20 years, it will be the same.

“How many years after Nottingham Forest [in 1977-78] and Blackburn [in 1994-95] have another team won?

“The richest, or the team who can pick up the best players to make a team, will win.”

Ranieri feels it may be not be until more time has passed that the scale of Leicester’s shock achievement is truly appreciated.

“Maybe now is too early to think what we have done,” added the Leicester boss.

“Maybe in one or two years it will be easier to understand, but now it is important to stay high in the world.”

Champions Leicester will receive the Premier League trophy following their game at home to Everton on Saturday.
