Leicester players get luxurious car gifts
Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and their team-mates led the club to an astonishing 5,000-1 title win and Thai owners King Power have rewarded them each with a brand new BMW i8.
The club has taken delivery of 19 of the cars, worth 104,500 pounds ($136,350, 123,270 euros) as part of their bonus agreement with the players.
Asked if he would be receiving a car, manager Claudio Ranieri told a press conference on Friday: “Some gifts are only for them? Not for me? I want to speak with my owner!”
Ranieri, who is preparing his side to face FA Cup winners Manchester United in the season-opening Community Shield on Sunday, added: “I’m thinking about the match, not about the cars.”
Leicester open their Premier League title defence away to Hull City on August 13.
