Posted by Jules Gammond on

Launched later this month is The Immortals, the unbelievable story of Leicester City's sensational Premier League season when they went from 5000-1 outsiders to win their first title in their 132-year history.

Written by legendary sports writer Harry Harris, the £9.99 paperback is being rush-released just days after their final match against Chelsea on May 15.

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri said it was an "amazing feeling" to have steered the club to the first top-flight title in their history.

The Foxes were crowned Premier League champions on Monday, when nearest rivals Tottenham drew 2-2 at Chelsea.

Former Chelsea manager Ranieri, who took charge at the King Power Stadium in July 2015, said: "I'm so proud. The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible."

Harris commented: " The Immortals tells the story of the most unlikely Premier League season of all time, arguably the most amazing season ever. Not just the games, but behind the scenes, what the players, manager, owners, everyone connected to the club, and most especially the fans, all had to say about the what has been universally hailed as a footballing “miracle".

" This is not just a ‘scrapbook’ of everything encapsulated in one single season belonging to one individual club. This is a story loved and cherished by every single fan irrespective of their allegiances. "

Prolific author and multi award winning football writer Harry has written 76 books, selling more than one million copies, winning 24 major journalists awards. “This has been one of the most enjoyable and uplifting books I’ve ever written.”
