Former Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri will see another award presented to him in the shape of the Golden Bench gong.

The 65 year old led us to a fantastic Premier League winning campaign last season but with form this year and struggles, he was sacked in February owing to our relegation battle.

Inspite of that the recognition for his achievements keep on coming and now he will be presented with the Panchina d’Oro (Golden Bench) award by the Italian Football Association.

Having picked up the BBC Sports Personality award for coach of the year, and FIFA’s own award amongst many other trophies, the FIGC, Italian FA, announced this week.

‘During the ceremony a special Golden Bench will be given to Claudio Ranieri, the protagonist of the extraordinary journey by Leicester, with whom he won the Premier League.’

The event takes place at Italy’s national training centre Coverciano on Monday next week.

Well done again Claudio.
