Ranieri wants Leicester stars to remain at the club


Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri wants to stick with the players who secured Premier League glory in the Champions League next term. The Foxes boss has indicated that he has no desire to “break his dressing rooom” with big-name signings in a bid to preserve the spirit in the squad.

“I don’t want the big names here, I don’t want to break my dressing room – my lads are special,” he said.

“We want to buy some good players but who arrives must have the same spirit.”

Star men such as Winger Riyad Mahrez, striker Jamie Vardy and midfielder N’Golo Kante have been tipped to move away from the King Power Stadium this Summer but Ranieri has advised his title winners to stay for at least one more year.

“I’m very, very confident [they will stay],” he said. “I suggest to all my players stay one year more. Don’t go. If you go to another team, you might not get on the pitch.”

Leicester will be presented with the Premier League trophy after Saturday’s home match against Everton, where the King Power Stadium will be serenaded by opera star Andrea Bocelli.
