Title-winning Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has collected another prize after being named the winner of the Enzo Bearzot award for the best Italian coach of the season. The award was founded in 2011 to honour the man who coached Italy to World Cup glory in 1982 and died in 2010.And Ranieri has been named the 2016 winner after guiding Leicester, who battled relegation for much of last season, to an improbable Premier League title success. The 64-year-old Ranieri has emerged as one of the most popular figures in British football over the course of the season, his calmness and good humour a constant, despite the pressure of a title race.And the experienced boss flew to Rome on Monday to collect the Bearzot award in person.Honestly, I still havent realized what weve done, said Ranieri. We started off just trying to avoid relegation and you saw what happened. Ranieri has enjoyed an amazing season in charge of Premier League winners Leicester I never met Bearzot but Ive been told by people that they see his spirit in me and that fills me with pride.Italian FA chief Carlo Tavecchio said: Of all the titles won by Italians, Claudios achievement is something unparalleled.He added that he would like to see Ranieri coaching the Italian national team one day.Im talking in an abstract manner, not about the next World Cups, he said. Claudio is young and he has time. In his second sports homeland [England] he still has a lot to achieve. And I dont think it would be easy to deprive him of that opportunity.

Discount Baseball Jerseys .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. CINCINNATI -- Any other NFL team would be starting the season with a new head coach.A playoff meltdown against Pittsburgh left Cincinnatis Marvin Lewis 0-7 in the postseason, a mark that would get anybody else fired.Owner Mike Brown doesnt even think of it that way.Asked on Tuesday why hes so patient with a coach who has such a horrible record in the playoffs, Brown turned the question around. He mentioned the five straight playoff appearances, something only three other teams have accomplished in the same span.I like Marvin, the 80-year-old owner said. I think hes a good coach. We work well together. Weve had our form of success. The teams in a good position. And I would reverse the question: Why would you want to fire Marvin Lewis after all hes done? I think hes earned his spot.Lewis has done a lot to help Brown resuscitate his team during their 13-year allegiance. The Bengals were historically bad before Lewis was hired in 2003. Two years later, he got them to the playoffs for the first time in 15 years.Hes gotten the Bengals to the playoffs seven times overall and lost all seven games, the most consecutive playoff losses by a head coach in NFL history. Cincinnati has lost a first-round game each of the past five seasons, another NFL record -- no other team has dropped more than three straight.The loss last season was the most stinging. The Bengals self-destructed in the final minute at home against the Steelers, with personal foul penalties on Vontaze Burfict and Adam Pacman Jones moving Pittsburgh into range for a field goal and an 18-16 victory.Instead of getting fired, Lewis got an extra year added to his contract, which now runs through the 2017 season.Why? Because we trust in him, we believe in him, we think hes a good coach, Brown said before the teams preseason luncheon.Weve had a good run. And yes, at the end it conspired against us, but those games were very close. They were decided by a play or two and maybe the next time if we get there -- its hard to get there -- but iif we get there, maybe the ball will bounce our way finally.dddddddddddd I like to think it will.Lewis acknowledges that hed likely be fired anywhere else. For now, his job is as safe as any in the league. Brown wants to keep him, and Lewis wants to keep trying to win a playoff game.Ive not been interested in moving any place, Lewis said. Its that simple. Its a two-way street.Although Lewis and quarterback Andy Dalton are the faces most closely associated with the franchise, Brown is the one with whom its most closely identified. He took over when his father, Paul, died shortly before the start of the 1991 season. The Bengals were coming off a playoff appearance that included a first-round win over the Houston Oilers.They havent won a playoff game since then, giving them the sixth-longest streak of postseason futility in NFL history. During Cincinnatis lost decade of the 1990s, fans brought anti-Brown banners to games and put anti-Brown bumper stickers on their cars.Brown joked on Tuesday about a Bengals employee that recently saw one of those bumper stickers around town.(He) was telling me he got behind a pretty beat-up truck that had a bumper sticker along the lines that he was for Trump, and then there was a worn-out sticker on the bumper down below that said `Mike Brown Still Stinks, Brown said.So Ive never gotten free and clear of how people see me, but the team has made real progress. The team is seen in the community in a good way, I think.Asked if he thinks hell ever be considered beloved in the community, Brown laughed.What the heck, he said. Im in a business where theres gonna be someone to kick around, as Nixon once said. `You dont have me to kick around anymore -- you remember his speech? Im happy to be kicked around. Im still here.
