Leicester: Ranieri toasts team's triumph,flies home on the owner's £43m private jet

Toasting his success with a glass of bubbly, victorious Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri was swept back into Britain by one of the club’s glamorous directors last night after visiting his mother in Italy.
The 64-year-old Italian manager flew to his native Rome on Sunday for his mother Renata’s 96th birthday, before returning home on a £43million Gulfstream G650 jet into East Midlands Airport.
And Foxes executive director Supornthip Choungrangsee posted a picture on Instagram overnight of her with Ranieri in the jet, which belongs to the club’s owner Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Captioning the picture in the jet, which can fly non-stop from the Far East to Britain and was bought from Bernie Ecclestone's wife Fabiana Flosi, she wrote: ‘We are the champion in premiere league.'
Speaking from his car in Leicester today, Ranieri said: 'I feel good, you can imagine. (Last night I was) at home to watch the (Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur) match.

'I had lunch with my mother and then I come back with our plane and I arrived 7pm and 8pm I watched the match. No, not yet (I haven't spoken to the players).
'The job is good. I very, very happier now, because maybe if I won this title at the beginning of my career, now I forgot. No, now am I very, very old man and then I can feel much better.

'I don't know the secret. I think the players, the heart, the soul, how they play it. (I say to the fans) keep going, we want to improve a lot.’
The jet helped Ranieri - and his antiques dealer wife Rosanna - make it back to the UK in time for last night’s crucial match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw and handed his side the Premier League title. He had been due on a return flight at the same time as the contest that would decide his team’s fate.

But continuing the cool and calm approach he has shown all season, the manager appeared unfazed by the possibility of missing the moment of victory.

Speaking after Leicester missed out on a win against Manchester United that would have secured the title on Sunday, Ranieri said: ‘I will be the last man in England to know … I’d like to watch the game but I am on a flight back from Italy.
‘I want to meet my mother, who is 96 years old, and go for lunch with her. I fly back at the same time as the match. So I won’t know the result. But when we land I will hear.’
However, as members of the squad gathered to watch the match at striker Jamie Vardy’s £1million eight-bedroom home in Melton Mowbray, Ranieri arrived back on English soil in time to see the first league title of his 30-year coaching career confirmed.
At Leicester, Ranieri has preached a policy of unrelenting hard work, mixed with a unique personal charm.
He summed up his style by saying: ‘It’s the team spirit, and [the players] enjoy training. They know they can work hard and enjoy. A little bit of luck is important. Luck is the salt, the fans are the tomato – with no tomato there is no pizza.’
When players fail to give him their undivided attention, he keeps his cool and simply rings an imaginary bell, shouting ‘dilly-ding, dilly-dong’.
Of his wife, Rosanna, Ranieri has said in the past: ‘She’s suffered a lot for me. She doesn’t like football. She likes top quality furniture, I like top quality footballers.’ 
Rosanna runs two antiques shops in Rome, while his mother and father ran a butcher’s shop.
