Ranieri Impressed With “Strong” Musa After Goal Vs Spurs

 

 

By James Agberebi:

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has praised Ahmed Musa for the way the  Nigeria forward took his goal in the Foxes' 1-1 Premier League draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Musa equalised for Leicester off a Jamie Vardy assist after Vincent Janssen had given Spurs the lead from the penalty spot.

It was Musa's second goal of the season in back-to-back games.

 

Musa's good form has arrived just in time for Nigeria's key World Cup qualifier against Algeria on 12 November. 

In his post-match comments, Ranieri admitted Musa is beginning to come to grips with the English Premier League.

"Musa is a good player and slowly starting to understand the Premier League. He saw the ball arrive and was very strong," Ranieri said.

The Italian coach went on to describe Leicester's general play as outstanding against Spurs.

"I'm pleased with the point, our performance and our spirit. We played together and we fought together. Outstanding," he added.

"We always try to win. That's the magic of English football – both teams giving everything to try to win."

"We played well today against a good team. Our spirit often this season has been singular, but today it was squad spirit."
