Claudio Ranieri sends message to Leicester City supporters

Pre Kick Off

Leicester City fans have followed their team in large numbers so far this season.

Claudio Ranieri has hailed Leicester City's support on the club's official website, after they travelled in their hoards to cheer the side on against Southampton at the weekend.

Leicester supporters have shown a great willingness to back their side this season, even when they have fallen behind in matches.

And Ranieri has been impressed by the support they have given his players, especially after they inspired the side to come back from 2-0 down against Southampton.

“I have no more words for our fans," he said. "They are fantastic, they believe and they suffer with us. It’s fantastic.”

Many fan-bases would have got on their side's back, given the amount of times Leicester have had to come from behind this season, but there is real unity between the players and supporters at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes' never-say-die attitude has encouraged their followers that they are never out of ta game, and Leicester's home ground has become one of the most vocal in England as a result.

Leicester will be aiming to keep their supporters on side as the season progresses, too, by extending their fine start. 

Ranieri's men are currently sat in fifth place in the Premier League table, having lost only once throughout the course of the campaign so far.
