The face looks familiar, but...
Though well-liked as a person and appreciated as a tactician, Ranieri had earned a reputation as a nearly man; a decent enough coach who lacked the mean streak to win trophies or, more pertinently for Leicester, steer a limited side through a relegation dogfight.In 30 years of management, across four of Europe's top leagues, Italy, Spain, France and England, Ranieri had never won a major title. His zenith, aside from a couple of cups and lower-division titles, had been second-place finishes with Chelsea, Juventus, Roma and Monaco...Nice-guy Claudio, who never used to win the big prizes, now has a victory few managers in history can match.(link)
