After celebrating his team's Premier League championship on Monday, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri added more silverware to his collection, winning the Barlcays Premier League Manager of the Year Award and the League Managers' Association Manager of the Year Award.

Ranieri led Leicester to a 23W-12D-3L season, amounting 81 points and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League Group Stage next season.

The newly-dubbed manager of the year will lead a group of Leicester players to Thailand, the homeland of LCFC owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, to continue celebrating the championship. The Foxes will head to Thailand to thank the nation for its unwavering support over the course of the season.

A few players will be staying home due to international and personal commitments - Jamie Vardy, Danny Drinkwater, N'Golo Kante, Daniel Amartey, Nathan Dyer, and Riyad Mahrez. Captain Wes Morgan will be headlining the group of Leicester players making the trip to Asia.
