Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri doubts he will ever lose passion for management

Nathan Redmond has hailed the attacking freedom granted by Norwich City boss Alex Neil this season as they prepare to host Leicester City on Saturday.


The 34-year-old and the 63-year-old lock horns at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, but Ranieri said the only pearls of wisdom he would offer Neil was to forge his own career and never to lose his passion for the job.

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy’s double was not enough for Claudio Ranieri’s boys to win as the Gunners’ trio of strikers Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, and Oliver Giroud all found the back of the net during the match.

“I have no advice for him because you have to live the experience”.

Norwich manager Alex Neil is pitting his wits against a few of the best in the business in the Premier League. I don’t know if my passion would finish because when I go home, I watch the match. I am an experienced manager, but I am also very full of passion.

He told the club website: “He wants to play and doesn’t want to stop because of injury”. When I go on holiday, I stop and watch a match. Login using you Facebook, Twitter, Google or LinkedIn accounts and have your say!

“Maybe because I am a Latin man it is important the feeling between the manager and the players”.

“Everybody thinks when you play football, you understand football”. It’s completely another job.

Norwich playmaker Wes Hoolahan has finally peaked – at the age of 33.

Norwich City players have covered less ground in the Premier League this season than any other side (729km).

That is more than Ronaldo, Messi or Bale have managed so far this season.

“We agree as long as he is safe, and if the referee says it is okay then for us it is okay”.

“He has a specialised role in the side and the team is set up to exploit his talent to the maximum”.


“It is just about going to Norwich and showing them what we can do again“, he added.
