Leicester will be crowned Premier League champions if they win at Old Trafford Astonished... A huge punt... Incredible... thats what they said then, but now the script has been turned on its head, and Leicester will be crowned champions if they win at Manchester United on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1HD. Phil ThompsonOn Sky Sports: They should really have signed his agent. He got all those jobs for him! I may be quite wrong, but I dont think hes ever won anything. Hes been there, seen it, not done it, at all those places. Nigel Pearson did ever so well, and for Ranieri to get this job was quite incredible. I hope he does well, because he is a nice guy, but hes fortunate.Matt Le TissierOn Sky Sports: With Leicester I think it could be a massive struggle this season. I think he might struggle with the spirit there. Nigel Pearson was replaced by Ranieri in the summer Gary LinekerOn Twitter: Claudio Ranieri? Really?On BreatheSport: Claudio Ranieri is clearly experienced, but this is an uninspired choice by Leicester. Its amazing how the same old names keep getting a go on the managerial merry-go-round.Dietmar HamannOn Twitter: Cant believe Leicester appointed Ranieri ... Great club, great fanbase but Im afraid MK rather than Old Trafford season after next.Harry RedknappOn Twitter: Ranieri is a nice guy, but hes done well to get the Leicester job.

Leicesters story is one of most surprising fairytales in English football history Tony CotteeOn Sky Sports: Im astonished. I just didnt see this one coming. Obviously there have been many people linked to the job but as far as Im aware, Ranieri wasnt one and for me, it is a strange appointment.They made a massive risk getting rid of Nigel Pearson who did such a good job football-wise towards the end of last season. To appoint Ranieri now, bearing in mind where he has been the last 10 years, is a huge gamble.Robbie SavageOn BBC: Ranieri, good manager but for me not Leicester. If you play for the Foxes you need someone you can relate to as a manager. ONeill, Pearson are managers the players can relate to. Id have gone back to ONeill or Lennon. It will be a relegation battle whoever was manager. Big name, bad choice in my opinion. Time will tell. Hopefully I am wrong.Frank SinclairOn BBC: If I was a player at Leicester still I would be excited given the players he has worked with in the past - very excited.But for the next manager at Leicester, the job in hand is stabilising the club. I dont think they are looking to win things yet. If they can be a mid-table team then he will be doing a fantastic job. Ranieri has led Leicester to the top of the Premier League Alan SmithIn the Daily Telegraph: Replacing Nigel Pearson with Claudio Ranieri can only be described as a huge punt. The risk is that City now lose some of the energy, aggression and spirit that pulled them to safety.Paul MersonSpeaking on Sky Sports in September: Leicester have started well and theyll be well safe. They can beat teams and I love the Nathan Dyer signing… he could easily get in Tottenhams team.Stan CollymoreIn the Daily Mirror: Last seasons Great Escape will have instilled incredible belief at the King Power. Having met Nigel Pearson on a number of occasions last season, he was in no doubt that the Foxes would claw themselves to safety. Riyad Mahrez celebrates with Jamie Vardy during a vital win over Crystal Palace Unfortunately, the script has changed. Im not convinced about Tinkerman Claudio Ranieri. Pearson had the dressing room. The players believed in him. Ranieri has a job on his hands earning the same respect.Dont underestimate the loss of Esteban Cambiasso, either. But I think the players believe. That could be enough. It may be just as messy as it was last time, though.Michael OwenOn Twitter: Right then here we go again #Top6Bottom3: Top 6: Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs.Bottom 6: Bournemouth, Leicester, Watford.
