Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is confident in the ability of record signing Ahmed Musa to make a big impact at the club and form a deadly strike force with last season’s leading scorer, Jamie Vardy, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Musa, who joined the Foxes from Russian champions CSKA Moscow is yet to hit the ground running in the English Premier League though he put in a decent showing in his side’s opening two games against Hull City and Arsenal.
Ranieri believes the versatile Musa who can play in multiple attacking positions will come good for the club and also wreck defences alongside Vardy.
“They connect well. It is important that Musa understands how we play because the Russian league is very different from English football,” the Italian coach told the Leicester’s official website ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game against Swansea.
“They play at a slower tempo. The English league is very fast.
“In the last 10 minutes last week he played very well and created a lot of chances for us. He must increase his fitness and understanding. He can play together with Vardy.
“We bought Musa because he can play wide, behind the striker as well. It’s a good choice for me during the match.”
