Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has been named Coach of the Year at the Fifa Best ceremony in Zurich after guiding the club to their first-ever Premier League title during the 2015-16 season.

The 65-year-old guided the Foxes to their first-ever Premier League title, despite many suggesting that his side would battle against relegation.

In just 10 months, Ranieri transformed City into real contenders for the title before guiding them to the title with a 10-point lead over second-place Arsenal.

In recent months, the Italian tactician was honoured with both the LMA Manager of the Year and the Gazzetta Sport Coach of the Year awards.

Meanwhile this season, Ranieri has gained more success with the club after helping them reach the Last 16 of the Champions League as Group G winners during their debut season in the European tournament.

‘I’m crazy now. Thank you so much for voting me. I’m 65 now, I start now as a manager,’ Ranieri said after receiving the award from Argentina legend Diego Maradona.
