Wenger hurt by Leicester's Premier League glory


The north London club bowed out of the title race with a 2-2 draw against rivals Chelsea, a game which they led by two goals at the halfway stage.

Leicester Citys owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha (holding the trophy) and his son, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha (next to Kasper Schmeichel) join in the celebrations after winning the Barclays Premier League at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Saturday.

"Yes", Ranieri said. "Without respect!"

Jamie Vardy scored twice to lead Leicester City's on-field party as they marked lifting the Premier League trophy with a 3-1 win at home to Everton on Saturday, while Sunderland climbed out of the relegation zone.

"But I have said so many times if one player comes to me and says "Gaffer, I want to go", then I leave him to go because it is okay". "No more than 10 times in my life have I been in a disco". "Let me go to the sea and recharge my batteries". "But they've done extremely well with less resources and their efficiency level between money spent and results are by far the best in Europe, and you have to give them credit for that".

"I need just three hours and then I will start to think to the next match (at Chelsea on Sunday)". That is what makes it so incredible and so special I'm the happiest man in the world. A sea of blue scarves painted the stadium a brilliant blue, and as opera singer Andrea Bocelli belted out a tribute to Leicester before kickoff, an inflatable dinosaur bobbled across the crowd.

"The emotion was at the top, but it was fantastic".

"A plea is for those who do not need to come into A&E to call NHS 111 for healthcare advice".

There's a lot you can get away with when you have just delivered a 64-year-old manager his first top flight title and helped to transform 5,000-1 long-shots into one of the most improbable champions in sports history.

"I think when we won at Manchester City [was key]", he said, before adding: "When I lost 2-1 I said "we can do something". I don't know", he said.

"There are very few players who we've got who are out of contract, so the ones who did it this season will be given the opportunity to see if they can duplicate that form and do it again".

Kevin Mirallas pulled a late goal back for the visitors.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has come in for sustained criticism from his own fans in recent weeks and he made no attempt to defend his side's performance.

Steve was awarded the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to handover the trophy as the victor of the Barclays "I Am One" competition to celebrate the end of season and Barclays' 15 years of sponsorship of the Premier League.

"From our point of view, it was a very, very disappointing day". We never turned up.

"We looked like a group of individuals". Thank you for supporting us!
