Ranieri: “‘Leicester close to special achievement'”

Leicester City head coach Claudio Ranieri has admitted that his team are close to achieving “something special” in the Champions League.

The Premier League titleholder have marked their first appearance in the competition with three successive wins, and a fourth victory against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday would book their place in the knockout stages.

“We are very close to achieving something special. We can write a new chapter of Leicester’s story,” Ranieri told BBC Sport.

“Maybe it’s not tomorrow. It’s important to be well organised as I respect Copenhagen a lot,” he added.
