Leicester striker Islam Slimani: I'll always be Sporting CP fan

Leicester City striker Islam Slimani says Sporting CP is always in his thoughts.

Slimani is backing his old club to win the Portuguese championship.

"If Sporting becomes champions, as I believe, I guarantee I'll be in Lisbon to celebrate," he said.

"I am and always will be a lion.

"Sporting have a good team and a good coach. What about the reinforcements, I can say is that when Jorge Jesus chooses a player, he knows what he's doing."
