Leicester City’s Premier League triumph last season was an inspiration for the world, according to Copenhagen head coach Stale Solbakken.Advertisement
Eventually, City paid over £5 million for his services almost a year ago, fulfilling Amarety’s dream of playing Champions League football, and the Ghana global says a lot of that is down to Solbakken.
FC Copenhagen’s players take part in a training session at the King Power stadium in Leicester.
Leicester City midfielder Nampalys Mendy will be out of action for around five weeks after undergoing an surgery on his ankle, manager Claudio Ranieri has said.
“We lost concentration just one time and that cost us”. We’re confident we can turn this around.
Relaxed Ranieri, for his part, seems relaxed.
“They fight and last season we were more compact but now everyone knows about us”.
Foxes captain Wes Morgan was also struggling with a back injury but as he gradually recovered, so did his side as Jamie Vardy saw a long-range shot deflected wide. They are human, not machines. So perhaps Ranieri is opting to use his best players for what he considers more “winnable” matches.
Claudio Ranieri’s side shuffled their pack following a comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon at Stamford Bridge.
“I’d like them to continue to show this”. The only thing I’m disappointed with is the result.
Leicester’s problems are not confined to defence.
Leicester’s decision to prioritize the Champions League over the Premier League is being vindicated.
Vardy was given time on the flank and the striker launched a deep cross to Slimani. I have a lot to thank him for, but after the game. “As players, we need to stand up and be counted”, Albrighton added.
“It’s not his fault – maybe it’s mine. We’ve come a long way and it’s important to remember that”.
Two wins from two over Club Brugge and FC Porto have seen the Foxes move to within four points of a near-guaranteed qualification to the Round of 16.
A 1-0 win courtesy of a Riyad Mahrez goal in the 41st minute gave Leicester nine points from three games – more points than they have in the Premier League.
Copenhagen will be no pushovers. With three matches remaining, they are five clear of second-placed Copenhagen and Porto, who beat Club Bruges 2-1 in Belgium.
Leicester, however, have already demonstrated this competition is to their liking. “You look at the last few seasons, we haven’t been the quickest of starters”.
Leicester City is having a horrid season in England, but the team has been better in the UCL winning both games to kick off its tournament.
