Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri has pointed out that the club is among the best he has ever managed, after they recorded an emphatic 3-0 win over Stoke City.
The first half ended 1-0 with Danny Drinkwater getting his first ever EPL goal, before Vardy and Ulloa completed the win.
Ranieri has managed the likes of Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Valencia, Roma and even Juventus, and has rated Leicester highly.
“This is one of the best [sides I have managed at]. Our strength is our passion,” Ranieri told BBC Sport. “We put everything into it and that is what I love about these players.
“It was a difficult match because Stoke City are a very difficult team, solid and strong. We wanted to win, and to be top of the league at the end of January is very important for us.
“Nobody can believe it. Our fans are dreaming and I want them to continue to dream. I don’t know if we are a contender at this moment. February is a big month and after that month I can say something more realistic.”
Vardy ended a run of seven games in all competitions without a goal when he rounded Jack Butland to make it 2-0, but Ranieri says he has been delighted with the England striker’s contribution even during his barren run.
He added: “I am pleased because I always tell Jamie Vardy it is not important to score a goal, it is important to press and when you score, then it is normal. I am very happy with him.”
