Claudio Ranieri says he will not be happy if Leicester miss out on the Premier League title but insists he can do nothing more. The Foxes face Swansea, live on Super Sunday on Sky Sports 1HD, with four games ahead of them to decide the title with second-place Tottenham, who are five points behind.Ranieri has never won a league championship - he was a runner-up with Chelsea in 2004, Juventus in 2009, Roma in 2010 and Monaco in 2014 - and he is aware this fact may be highlighted in the final months of the season. Ranieri said: I know there are people out there who, if I dont win the title, will say: Ah, Ranieri, he always comes second.But look at my career. I was second at Chelsea but we had started to build a team during the previous year. I continued to buy people during the first matches during the Premier League and Champions League. We came second.At Roma, I was second. I arrived after two matches. We had zero points and we finished with 80 points. Inter had 82. What can I do? I lost but what more could I do? Claudio Ranieris Leicester are five points clear at the Premier League summit I arrived at Juventus the first year after Serie B. We were third, then second. I had four or five champions but others were young players. What more could I do?With Monaco, we won the second division. Then we finished behind Paris St Germain, second by eight points.

Free agent quarterback Vince Young is taking a physical with the team Monday and is expected to participate in Clevelands minicamp this week. Browns general manager Ray Farmer said the team has been tracking Young, who hasnt played in an NFL regular-season game since 2011 with Philadelphia. He has spent parts of the past two offseasons with Buffalo and Green Bay. Young, selected third overall by Tennessee in 2006, is 31-19 as a starter. "Our interest in Vince is that hes been productive and hes had success in the National Football League," Farmer said at a predraft news conference. "We wanted to take the opportunity to get a chance to see where he was. Weve been kind of following him through the off-season and he had been doing some things that kind of caught our eye and made us kind of take note and we wanted to see what that looked like in his own time frame." Farmer said the Browns are also bringing in Tyler Thhigpen, who last played for Buffalo in 2012.dddddddddddd The Browns need to add a veteran to back up Brian Hoyer, who is penciled in as the starter heading into this season but is coming off knee surgery. Other than Hoyer, the only quarterback on Clevelands roster is Alex Tanney, who was signed late last season as the Browns were hit hard by injuries at quarterback. Both Young and Thigpen are mobile, and Farmer said thats an important quality in new co-ordinator Kyle Shanahans offence. "They both are very good athletes," Farmer said. "They both have had relative success -- I know Vince you would easily say probably more than Tyler. Thats a good piece. I think Kyle would tell you that he likes a quarterback that is mobile. The offence definitely is going to require the quarterback to do different things, play outside the pocket to some degree." The Browns own the No. 4 and No. 26 overall picks in next weeks draft, and its possible they could use either of them on a quarterback such as Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel or Teddy Bridgewater.
