This is the inside story of the rise and rise of a butcher’s son from Rome whose hard work, passion for the game, and ability to learn from his mistakes have earned him the respect of players, fans, and owners worldwide. Between them, journalists Gabriele Marcotti and Alberto Polveros have known Claudio Ranieri since his early days as a central defender. They followed his successes, failures, and evolution—as a player, manager, and person. From Ranieri’s career as a dogged—if not gifted—player, to the skillful tactics, single-minded focus, and risk-taking transfers that set him apart as a manager at teams like Roma and Chelsea, this is the only in-depth insight into the man behind Leicester City’s Premiership triumph.
