Claudio Ranieri insists he is not nervous about the prospect of leading Leicester City to a first-ever Premier League title.
Leicester need just three points from their final three games to be crowned champions and they could clinch the league on Sunday if they defeat Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Ranieri has continually played down Leicester's chances of winning the league but as the Foxes close in on history the Italian has allowed himself to dream.
That dream could become a reality at the weekend, but the former Chelsea manager is keen not to get caught up in the euphoria, preferring to focus on getting his players ready for the trip to Old Trafford.
"I can understand the happiness around the city but that's the fans. We have to work. I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal and I know it will be a very difficult match," Ranieri told his pre-match press conference.
"I want to concentrate on the next match. The players have trained just the same, very concentrated. I talked to the players. Everything is in our hands. If our strength is to be concentrated, we must continue in this way.
"I'm not nervous. I think only of Manchester. Be strong. Be solid. We know very well that now is a real chance to win the Premier League title. Next season, you never know what will happen.
"This is unbelievable. This is history. I am relaxed because I watch my players. They train well, enjoy and help each other. It's important to prepare well."
