Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has revealed that he may miss his side win an historic first-ever Premier League title because he has a lunch date with his 96-year-old mother.
Ranieri and his players could have secured the league championship with a victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier today but the Foxes could only manage a 1-1 draw.
But the point does edge Leicester one point close to the finishing line, and they need just two points at the very most from their remaining two games against Everton and Chelsea.
In fact, they might not need to kick another ball at all.
Should second-placed Tottenham fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow evening, Leicester will be crowned champions - but Ranieri won't be with his players or staff to savour the moment.
Following today's result, he told ITV: "Tomorrow night I am on a flight. Now I go back to Italy and I come back at the same time of the match. I will be the last man to know the result.
"I want to meet my mother. She is 96 years old and I'd like to go to have lunch with her."
What a lovely son, eh? Perhaps the pilot can keep him updated with the score.
