In our local parlance, a saying goes thus; “When the Jungle matures, we will know the brave-hearted people that will survive.” This among other narratives was shared by football fans in the league when Leicester City started the 2015/2016 season on a good run.
Many believed they were on a roller coaster ride and they will eventually drop to the mid-table or return to their relegation fight.
Little did football fans in the world know that they were about to witness what will go down as one of the most iconic seasons in the history of the Premier League.
The bookmaker’s odds for Leicester City to win the league at the start of the season was set at 5000-1 most likely because they narrowly escaped relegation the previous season.
However, Leicester City, led by Claudio Ranieri against all odds won the league even before the final game of the season.
