Claudio Ranieri is using a delicious method to motivate his players

Kevin Beirne

Leicester City have been arguably the best team in the Premier League in 2015.

Not even a change of managers in mid summer could stop their run, as they currently lie second in the table behind Manchester City only because of an inferior goal difference.

While the two teams have both scored 11 goals, Leicester have conceded a worrying seven, with the Foxes letting in at least one goal in every game this season.


But new manager Claudio Ranieri has a plan to change all of this, by offering to take his whole team out for pizza once they record their first clean sheet.

Ranieri told BBC Radio Leicester: “When we make a clean sheet, I pay for everyone [to have] a pizza.”

Strangely though, the Leicester players haven’t responded to the Italian’s tactics: “But my players don’t want pizza. Maybe they don’t love pizza.”
