Ranieri: I am angry


Claudio Ranieri has admitted he is very angry with his Leicester side despite the club edging closer to qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Foxes defeated FC Copenhagen to maintain their 100 per cent record in Europe and they will secure their progress to the last 16 if they defeat their Danish opponents on November 2.

Their success in Europe is in stark contrast to their domestic form with the reigning Premier League champions picking up just eight points from their opening eight games.

The squad gathered at the club's training ground on Sunday morning to hold clear-the-air talks on the back of their 3-0 defeat to Chelsea and Ranieri has voiced his frustration at their inconsistent form.

"I'm very proud from one side, from another side when I think about the Premier League I'm very, very angry. It's just psychological because when we play in the Champions League, they're switched on, they're smart, focused in every situation," Ranieri told reporters after the defeat of Copenhagen.

"You pay for this, you spend a lot of energy, mental energy in Champions League games then you come back a little more down, it's normal.

"But we want to change this mood because it's important for us now the Premier League.

"The Premier League is our priority but also of course the Champions League because now in one month, three matches and we're in or out. We are in a good position, our destiny is in our hands. We want to continue in this way."
