But the veteran Leicester boss has warned Norwich rookie Alex Neil he is hungrier than ever ahead of today’s meeting.
Nathan Redmond has hailed the attacking freedom granted by Norwich City boss Alex Neil this season as they prepare to host Leicester City on Saturday.
The Canaries earned an impressive 2-2 draw away against on form West Ham last weekend to move themselves five points clear of the drop-zone and consolidate their position in mid-table on nine points after seven games of the new season.
The 34-year-old and the 63-year-old lock horns at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, but Ranieri said the only pearls of wisdom he would offer Neil was to forge his own career and never to lose his passion for the job.
“When I go on holiday, if there is a match, I’ll stop and watch it”.
“It is important to maintain the same passion”. He presses everyone, works the channels and the space, and he is also very calm in his decision making. Maybe it is because I am a Latin man, but I think the feeling between the manager and players is important.
“He has improved a lot and I am very happy with him“. Login using you Facebook, Twitter, Google or LinkedIn accounts and have your say!
“When I was young I wanted to understand very well what happened because everybody thinks that when you play football, you understand football – it’s not the same”.
“But it’s not the same”. It’s completely another job.
Foxes supporters in the Tavern are delighted by Vardy’s commitment to play through the pain although they’re concerned a more serious injury to their striker will severely damage their season.
“It is the first defeat for the team, but I am quite positive about the way we played”, said Okazaki to the Leicester Mercury.
“If we beat them though, we can go above them so that just shows how well we have started as well”.
