Ranieri: Musa Is Now Ready For Premier League

 

 

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has backed Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa to score regularly in the Premier League as the Italian believes the Super Eagles star is now used to the tempo.

Musa scored his first competitive goal on Saturday as Leicester defeated Crystal Palace 3-1, leaving his manager a happy man.

"I feel good," Ranieri said in his post-match interview.

 "For the first 20 minutes I felt not so good but after that we started to play our pressing, fast football against a very good team

 

"That was our best performance so far this season. It was the shape and model of last season and we concentrated on doing our job. We knew our weaknesses but also strengths. 

 

"I know what Shinji Okazaki can do. He is a worker and he links well with the midfield. 

 

"Ahmed Musa is slowly, slowly understanding the Premier League tempo and he is now ready. 

 

"This was not a game for Jamie Vardy just like last game was not a game for Riyad Mahrez. I want to rotate my players and now everybody is ready to fight for their place on the pitch. 

 

"I said I would share my birthday cake in the dressing room if I got a clean sheet… They clearly don't want a piece!"
