He comes from non-league but for him it is not too late to arrive at a high, high level. I wish all the best for him.“I have a very good feeling now, not only with the strikers or only with Vardy.“I feel very good here at Leicester with the chairman, with the family of the chairman, with all my staff, with all our players, all our fans. It is fantastic, there is a good electricity.The Italian manager also praised the Foxes supporters, and spoke of how lucky he feels to be with the club. “It’s one of the best atmospheres I’ve had at any club. I am a very lucky man to be here.”last_img
