Leicester City 3 - 1 Everton @ King Power Stadium
Current England Premier League champions, Leicester City defeated Everton 3 – 1 with a goal from Andy King, and two goals from Jamie Vardy, on Saturday, and the the Foxes celebrated winning the league with their devoted fans and staff in an emotional and uplifting tribute.
During the celebration 64-year-old Ranieri proudly stood with the famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli brought tears and awe to everywon as he sang “Time to Win Again”, Bocelli's special version of the stunning "Time to Say Goodbye".
After a 132-year wait in between titles, Leicester captain Wes Morgan and his manager lifted the Premier League trophy into the air together with a stunning backdrop of fireworks.
Full-back Danny Simpson talked with the media about his feelings of winning the coveted EPL trophy for the Foxes, and being presented with his own Premier League Champions medal.
“We won it on Monday night at Jamie’s house. But to actually see it there, walk up and put the medal round your neck and see your skipper lift it, it hits you,” Danny Simpson said. “The medal’s not coming off for weeks.”
After their amazing battle all the way from near relegation to Premier League victory this season, the Foxes are looking forward to being "the new kids on the block" when they compete with the most powerful and prestigious clubs in Europe in the 2016 – 2017 Champions League.
Of course fans are fearing the loss of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, and Kante to other EPL or Spanish wealthy, titan clubs during the summer trasfer window, after the footballers' spectacular key roles in Leicester’s success story.
EPL trophy winner Claudio Ranieri urged his new superstars to stay on at Leicester "another year and then go wherever they want". Ranieri said: "I feel it is possible, maybe, to keep all the players.
"It is important for us but it is important also for them because they don't know the Champions League. If they go away, it is not good for them. It is much better if they improve another year here and then go wherever they want,” continued Ranieri. "But I have said so many times if one player comes to me and says 'Gaffer, I want to go', then I let him to go because it is okay."
Amid transfer speculation talk and rumors, Danny Simpson plans to stay at Leicester and hopes all his teammates will stay as well.
"I want everyone to stay because it is a special group. Hopefully they stay and we can kick on because we are going places,” said Simpson. "I've played in a lot of teams now and that is not easy to get. Hopefully everyone wants to keep going and grow as a group and as a club.
"We all have a bit of banter but at the end of the day we have had a job to do and been concentrating on the games. Whatever the lads decide to do is up to them,” added Simpson. "We just hope we can keep this group together because for me it has so much potential to do even more things than what we have."
It is rumored that Foxes’ boss Claudio Ranieri may bring in some new quality talent to King Power Stadium to add depth to his squad that will have a harder workload compared to this campaign due to their upcoming European games.
“I hope we can find good players and make some replacements because next season there will be three cups and the Premier League, and it will be important to be able to make good changes and give some rest to the players,” said Ranieri.
The draw for the 2016-17 Champions League Group Stage will take place in Monaco on August 25, 2016. Be sure to check back for Champions League tickets.
“I believe when they make the draw for the Champions League a lot of teams will want to play against us because we are in for the first time and they think we are underdogs,” Ranieri said.
‘We are underdogs but we are dangerous,’ said Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri.
Leicester City’s annual awards dinner will be held on Tuesday evening,
And on Thursday night, Jamie Vardy will be in London to collect his 2015-16 Football Writers’ Player of the Year trophy,
Next Sunday the Foxes’ open-top bus will wind its way through the streets of Leicester in a city-wide victory celebration.
“I think we have proved that anything is possible,” Danny Simpson said. “You can go through the group individually. But it’s a team game and that is what we have proved this season. We are a team. Every single one of us has a little story, for whatever reason at other clubs. We’ve all come to Leicester, a great family club, and we have gelled as a group. Every one of us has excelled.”
