A spec­tac­u­lar rise of Le­ices­ter city

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - AAZ AHMED

Le­ices­ter fan­tas­tic foxes have taught the world to be de­ter­mined and calm to achieve the tar­get. They are lead­ers, a com­pul­sory trait of world class ath­letes. They be­lieve in build­ing a team and un­der Man­ager Clau­dio Ranieri they are Premier League win­ners. The credit goes to Mr. Ranieri and the team for their stren­u­ous ef­fort. Ac­cord­ing to him Foot­ball is about dreams, about feel­ing a special sen­sa­tion, giv­ing a sur­prise and in­spir­ing joy.

Le­ices­ter City played last in the Premier League in 2004. This sea­son they started with a good run of re­sults in their first five league games, start­ing with a 2–2 draw on the open­ing day against Ever­ton. The Foxes then claimed their first Premier League win since May 2004, with a 1–0 win at Stoke City. On 21 Septem­ber 2014, Le­ices­ter went on to pro­duce one of the great­est come­backs in Premier League his­tory to beat Manch­ester United 5–3 at the King Power Sta­dium af­ter com­ing back from 3–1 down with 30 min­utes left to score four goals.

The club made an ex­cep­tional start to the sea­son af­ter over a decade. Le­ices­ter City is now ranked num­ber 11 world­wide and num­ber 1 in Eng­land. One should keep on try­ing and try­ing as some­times it’s the last key to un­lock the locked door. —Karachi
