Leicester boss hints that his side can win the EPL this season

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has come out to hint that he believes his side can win the Premier League this season, Mirror reports.

Despite the fact that his side are currently top of the table, three points clear of second place Manchester City, the Italian manager is still keeping calm.

“Calm. Calm. Calm. Our fans must dream. We must stay with our feet on the ground,” he said.

He admitted that he would love to tell everyone that his side are favourites for the crown, but he is ready to watch the final few months play out.

“I’d like to say ‘Yes we can!’, but I am not Obama,” he added.

“If I maintain this suspense it is much better.”

Ranieri also added that his side are still not favourites as he believes the other three teams in the top four also have a chance to pip them to the title.

However, the Foxes will have two vital league clashes against City and then Arsenal coming up, matches that could eventually decide the race.

The squad have already played 24 league matches this season, so far winning 14, drawing eight, and losing only two as they head into the final 14 fixtures of the campaign.
