Ranieri Wants Man United Revenge; Praises Rashford, Martial

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri says his side will be gunning for revenge when they face Manchester United in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

The league champions lost 2-1 to the FA Cup holders in the season-opening Community Shield in August.

“They beat us in the Community Shield – now we want revenge,” Ranieri told his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

The Italian the praised United’s youngsters ahead of the match.

Ranieri added: “Rashford for me is an amazing player. Also Martial. They have very good young players.

“We are fearless. Why be scared to go to Old Trafford?” 

Ranieri claims that his players are in good physical shape as they prepare to face Manchester United.

“I think there’s no fatigue. They’re used to playing every three days,” he added.

“Our fitness is much better than a month ago at the start of the season.” 
Ranieri has had a strained relationship with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, but the Italian says there will be no hard feelings.

 “I love the red wine. If [Jose Mourinho] offers I go and drink with him,” he said.
“My relationship with Jose Mourinho is fantastic.”

  • Journalist: Coach I want to know why Ahmed Musa is not regularly playing but Slimani that just came to the team is up and doing and scoring too.

    Ranieri: Musa has to learn how to play English football. This is not Russia where you score by tipping the ball over the goalkeeper. You play shots which I have told him to but he is not learning.

    J: Do you think that is the reason because the few w matches he has played, he performs really well. Maybe you don’t like him but you like Mahrez and Slamani Islam.

    R: You are a Nigerian right? I can give you his contact number and you call and advise him.

    J: There is this rumour that for Mahrez to stay put in Leicester instead of going to Arsenal, he made a deal with you not to feature him as much as necessary because he wants him to be match rusty and will not be effective for the Super Eagles who are in the same group for the 2018 Russian WC. Can confirm that?

    R: You said rumour. It is just that. Musa does not work hard as the MVS. There do extra work but not Musa.

    J: sorry sir, what is MVS? OK OK OK, I can figure it out now. Mahrez, Vardy, Slamani. I only know of Barca MSN and the other ones in Real Madrid, BBC. It’s interesting.

    R: yes o. Very interesting. Some fans even call the combination SLIMVADREZ, VARMAHNI, SLIMARDY. I like the MVS to challenge those other combinations. You know we are in the Champions league too. So see Musa and talk to him. That story you heard is rumour. Thanks.

    J: I will sir. Don’t be annoyed with enquiry. I wish you 2-1 defeat of ManU on Saturday.
