The essential book on Leicester City FC's incredible, victorious 2015-16 season, from the Leicester Mercury's chief football writer. Leicester City - a team facing relegation a year ago, priced at 5000-1 to finish top at the start of this season - won the 2015-16 Premier League in the greatest fairytale in football history. From the Leicester Mercury's chief football writer Rob Tanner, and with unrivalled access to players, staff and fans, 5000-1: The Leicester City Story is Tanner's diary of this astonishing season as it happened, recounting the growing sense of hope and disbelief as the Foxes close in on glory. The story begins with the explosive end of Nigel Pearson's tenure as manager and the surprise appointment of Claudio Ranieri. From the loss of their talismanic midfielder Esteban Cambiasso to the 89th-minute winner against Norwich in February 2016, and the slaying of Tottenham and Manchester City with an unfancied team whose star man Riyad Mahrez cost less than Wayne Rooney earns in a month, it shouldn't have been possible. With incredible insider access, Tanner's book tells the full tale of the Premier League's most remarkable story to date - the dream of anyone who has ever supported an underdog.
