Transfer: Ranieri Reveals Why Leicester Signed Ahmed Musa


Leicester City Manager, Claudio Ranieri, has said that the Foxes will be relying on Ahmed Musa for his blistering speed.

The Italian tactician has underlined the importance of adding the Nigerian to his fold ahead of next English Premier League season

The Deputy Captain of the Super Eagles joined the reigning English champions from CSKA Moscow having snubbed a host of other English teams.

Ranieri has now revealed that Musa can now join his Royal Air Force to bolster the Foxes forward ranks as they hope to successfully defend their title.

“Musa can bring his speed,” Ranieri told Foxes Player HD. “I don’t know if he’s as quick as Jamie Vardy, but he has lots of speed.

“It’s very important to have another airplane in our squad. Remember, we are the RAF and we’ve signed one of them!”

Leicester City kicks off its season against Manchester United in the FA Community Shield on August 7, 2016.

The Foxes are to begin their title defence a week later against Hull City before hosting Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.
