Get your weekend started off right with the best Leicester City news from all over the Internet in today's edition of Leicester Links!

We begin with some plaudits for both the club and the manager.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, MY FRIENDS: Leicester City are guaranteed to finish as the top team in the Midlands for the first time in 53 years.

WELL DESERVED PLAUDITS: Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has won the Enzo Bearzot award for best Italian coach but...

YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM, HE'S OURS!: ...he is also under consideration by Italian officials to take over as national team coach.

BUSY DAYS FOR CLAUDIO: In addition to the above news, Claudio Ranieri also found time to write a fantastic piece for The Players' Tribune about his Leicester City side.  Make sure to read Fosse Posse's Shane Evans' take on it, as well.

YOU LIKE US!  YOU REALLY LIKE US!: Johnny Terry has named seven Foxes to his team of the year and named Riyad Mahrez his player of the year.

HOW DOES HE DO IT?: Captain Wes Morgan admits he does not know how he has survived his hectic schedule this year, which has included playing every single minute of Premier League football this season.  Players like Morgan, though, are fantastic to play behind, says goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

I GUESS A FUTURE KING CAN BANDWAGON...: Future King, Prince William, admitted at a dinner marking his 10 years as President of the FA that he is "dying for Leicester to win."

MORE TRANSFER RUMORS?  MUST BE YET ANOTHER DAY THAT STARTS WITH A Y: Rumor has it that Leicester may not be able to hang on to both Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante this summer, but there's certainly lots still be said about that.

Enjoy the weekend and the games (especially Sunday!).  Until Monday!
