Hamann suggested that Leicester were certainties to be relegated after they appointed Claudio Ranieri.
However, the Foxes’ start to the season has defied expectations, and they currently sit at the top of the Premier League table.
Leicester fans have been quick to remind Hamann of his disparaging comments, but the former German international is pleased about their start.
Rightly so, no point taking it off. Delighted for them and our Claudio. https://t.co/ju1ueGx45q— Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) November 25, 2015
Hamann was not the only observer to suggest that Ranieri’s appointment wouldn’t have been a success at the King Power Stadium before the season started.
Many Leicester fans were frustrated with the decision to part with Nigel Pearson and place the Italian boss in charge, but he has proven predictions wrong.
Leicester have been brilliant over the campaign so far, and they are currently the Premier League’s top scorers.
The Foxes’ next game comes against Manchester United, and if they are able to win, their position at the top of the table will look even stronger.
