By Declan Lloyd

Leicester City’s manager Claudio Ranieri has been awarded an honorary Doctor of Arts degree at DMU’s January Graduation Ceremony.
 
Mr Ranieri collected the award in person alongside hundreds of other graduates from DMU.
 
The degree recognises Mr Ranieri’s ‘incredible triumph’ with Leicester City.
 
Leicester City were famously 5000-1 to win the Premier League before last season started but Mr Ranieri led them to becoming only the fifth team to win the trophy.
 
DMU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dominic Shellard said: “Leicester City’s achievement last year was a thrilling feat that captured the hearts and minds of football fans worldwide, and of everyone with a love of adventure and a sense of the unlikely.
 
“Long before he won the title, Claudio Ranieri won the admiration and respect of our home city, and all of us at DMU.
 
“We are delighted to honour him today for his footballing achievements, for what he has done for our city of Leicester and for his personal qualities which represent all that is best in sport”.
