Being a "Loser" is a win-win scenario for managers in the English soccer Premiership: they just cannot lose!

The annual national sack race that takes place in England around this time has been won by a rank outsider, Claudio Ranieri, of Italian origin, but residing in the stormy land of Leicester, UK.

Previous winners, Jose Mourinho, Big Sam Allardyce, Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, Manuel Pellegrini, Roberto Mancini, among other prominent winners, have all congratulated Claudio on this fabulous win! He is now counting the $mega-millions due to him for finishing first past the post as the biggest loser ever in the eyes of his owner as they are forced to pay the rest of his huge salary, proving, "everyone's a winner" even if you are a loser!

The totally unexpected winner of the 2017 sack race has sent shockwaves through the world of sports, just like the shockwaves Claudio sent through the soccer world only several months ago as he was a rank outsider to be a contender for participation in the annual sack race; no way! However, that's modern day sport for you! Mega-bucks, no heart, just success at all costs and if you lose you win, especially when you are a manager of a football club in the English Premiership!

65 year-old Claudio has no plans to retire from future sack races because he's a wise old contender and knows exactly how to win again, by being the biggest loser of all time for a second or third time as the stakes are risen every time he participates; it's a win-win scenario!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
