Here's part of the problem though. It was Raneri that got most of the credit from the media for their success. I know Mahrez won player of the year and Arsenal were even in for Vardy, and Kante is arguably player of the year this season, but it was Raneri's charm that the media seemed to fall in love with.
Players at this level have massive egos and earn massive wages, so managing them well on a consistent basis is extremely difficult. You have to have incredible man management skills. Look at what happened to Pellegrini the year after we won the league. I think several of our players wanted to say "eff you" to Mancini, but then did arguably the same thing with Pellegrini after his "feel good" management style didn't work as well the following seasons.
Will be interesting to see how Chelsea do next season. I think Conte is more adept and diverse (like Pep) at man management, where he knows how to support his players, but also how to drop them or show he is the boss.
We don't know the whole story with Leicester, but seems there was more to it for this to be happening and is really just an example of the realities of modern football in top leagues.
