Italian football manager and former player who is the current manager of English club Leicester City, Claudio Ranieri, was delighted with his players for “giving their heart and soul” after his side overcame Southampton 1-0 to move seven points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.
Wes Morgan’s first-half header earned them a hard-fought victory against Southampton.
The Foxes skipper powered home Christian Fuch’s cross from the left as Claudio Ranieri’s men moved a step closer to the Premier League title.
“We believe in what we are doing – it’s a magical season,” Ranieri said. “Next year will not be the same; we know that.”
He added that the reason his side are flying so high at the BPL summit is because of their commitment to the cause.
“Other teams can win 3-0, 4-0, but we cannot do that,” he said. “We have to fight every match to win 1-0.”
The win means Leicester need four wins from their remaining six games to wrap up the championship.
