Ranieri: Sign­ing new striker vi­tal to ti­tle chances

The Daily Telegraph - Total Football - - FOOTBALL - By John Percy at the King Power Sta­dium

For­get the Tinker­man nick­name, for Clau­dio Ranieri is on course to be­come the Mir­a­cle Man.

While Le­ices­ter City’s Premier League ti­tle ri­vals cough and splut­ter their way through the sea­son, Ranieri’s fairy-tale cam­paign could end with a de­noue­ment Hol­ly­wood scriptwrit­ers would have dis­missed as fan­tasy.
