Not that he looks overly enthused about it, but Claudio Ranieri has been inducted into the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) Hall of Fame.

Unsurprisingly, Ranieri was honoured for somehow winning the Premier League title last season with a Leicester City team that are currently staving off relegation this time round.

The Foxes boss was present at the induction ceremony in Florence where he was sworn into the annals of Italian football by FIGC president Carlo Tevecchio, the chap in the photo who looks most like Norris from Coronation Street.

Ranieri was one of nine inductees for 2016, along with Giuseppe Bergomi, Paolo Rossi, Paulo Roberto Falcao, Silvio Berlusconi, Graziano Cesari, Melania Gabbiadini, Nils Liedholm, Giulio Campanati and Cesare Maldini – the last three all being posthumous awards.

Complimenti Claudio!

    Well deserved. And good to see Gabbiadini getting some recognition – he was brilliant for Darlington.
