RANIERI TO GET ‘GOLDEN BENCH’ AWARD IN ITALY

Claudio Ranieri will get a special award from the Italian Football Federation for leading Leicester City to a shock Premier League title last season.

The 65-year-old Italian was sacked in February with the club in a relegation battle.

He will receive a Panchina d’Oro (Golden Bench) award next week.

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