Ronald Koeman has backed surprise EPL title challengers, Leicester City, to do exploits in Europe.
Leicester are on the verge of claiming their first league trophy, needing just one game to be crowned champions, as they face United later today.
It is feared that the foxes are a one season wonder, but Southampton manager, Koeman has backed Ranieri’s men for European success.
“With the spirit and power they have in the team, Leicester are not going to be shown up in Europe,” Koeman told the Mirror.
“In fact, they will do well in the Champions League, even though the bigger clubs of England will have a better chance than them.
“But that will depend on how many star players Leicester will lose in the summer transfer window.
“Transfers will definitely take place, but that’s a massive compliment to the work that has been done by the club.
“And, for me, it is a big question whether Jamie Vardy would actually want to leave if a big club came in for him.
“Jamie has come from the very bottom part of the English league and I think, deep down in his heart, he would prefer to stay with Leicester for the rest of his career.
“He strikes me as someone who is grateful for what the club have done for him and he knows that it is not going to be easy in a different environment.”
