Dietmar Hamann reacts on Twitter after Leicester City fans remind him of pre-season prediction

Leicester City are currently leading the Premier League after 13 matches.

Dietmar Hamann says that he is delighted to have been proven wrong over his pre-season prediction for Leicester City.

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.

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.
