Despite being in the top, Ranieri is not aiming to win the PL

This season of the Premier League is turning out to be one of the most unpredictable of recent years as the events that are and have been occurring are not something that was initially expected to happen.

At the beginning of the season, Chelsea were the favorites on defending their Premier League title and emerging as the champions but fast-forward to December and now Chelsea is on the brink of entering the relegation zone and Jose Mourinho was sacked due to poor results.

Leicester City is positioned at the top of the English League after having collected 10 wins from their opening 16 matches of the season. Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are following them closely behind in the top 4 spots.

However, even with the remarkable start of the season that Leicester City has been going through, Claudio Ranieri stated that winning the Premier League is not main objective or what he is planning to do in his first year as the coach of the English club.

When the Italian football manager was asked about the possibility of actually winning the Premier League, Leicester City’s Claudio Ranieri replied by saying: “It’s a great satisfaction, but I feel serene. Leicester City are constructed in a way to reach other objectives, not to win the Premier League.”

Jamie Vardy is spearheading the offensive lines of Leicester City with a total of 15 goals scored in 16 appearances; the 28 years old English attacker is currently the top goal-scorer of the Premier League.

Vardy has already started to receive offers from other clubs but Ranieri made it clear that all of his star players will stay with the team and will not be offloaded during the January transfer window or anytime soon for that matter.

Ranieri is planning to keep his top performers in the team in order to accomplish one of the objectives that he announced at the earlier stages of the season and that’s to push Leicester City to a European spot and compete in the Europa League or maybe even in the Champions League.
