Claudio Ranieri Has Revealed What He Said To N'Golo Kante On His First Day At Leicester City

Claudio Ranieri Has Revealed What He Said To N'Golo Kante On His First Day At Leicester City

N'Golo Kante has truly revolutionised Leicester City's midfield this season with his lung-bursting runs and constant pressure on opponents.

"The man runs on batteries hidden in his shorts" according to Claudio Ranieri.

The Leicester City manager has revealed the conversation he had with Kante on his first day at the club, and it's absolutely brilliant.

Writing for The Players' Tribune, Ranieri questioned where French midfielder N'Golo Kante gets his energy from, and compared Jamie Vardy's roaming nature to that of a horse.

Here's what Claudio Ranieri said:

"This player Kante, he was running so hard that I thought he must have a pack full of batteries hidden in his shorts. He never stopped running in training.

I had to tell him, 'Hey, N'Golo, slow down. Slow down. Don't run after the ball every time, okay?'

He says to me, 'Yes, boss. Yes. Okay.'

I tell him, 'One day, I'm going to see you cross the ball, and then finish the cross with a header yourself."

Ranieri also said the following about Leicester City's man of the moment, Jamie Vardy:

"Jamie Vardy, for example. This is not a footballer. This is a fantastic horse. He has a need to be free out there on the pitch. I say to him.

You are free to move however you want, but you must help us when we lose the ball.

That's all I ask of you. If you start to press the opposition, all of your teammates will follow you
."

FACT: Jamie Vardy is not a footballer.
