‘Ranieri master of player psychology’

Eniola Aluko

Pressure can do funny things to players as the battle for a title goes down to the wire, particularly if you have never been in that situation before, but Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has proven that his mastery of psychology should be enough to avoid any slip-ups with three games to go.

This is a side which, Robert Huth apart, have no top-flight title-winning experience, has players drawn from lower leagues such as Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante, and have narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League last season.

While the whole world seems to be excited about football’s most unexpected triumph, Ranieri’s masterstroke has been tapping into his team’s humble backgrounds, spreading that humility in the media and delaying talk about title ambitions until the last few games.
