Mandaric: Leicester ready for challenge of Premier League

Leicester are ready to compete in the Premier League, according to owner Milan Mandaric. "We are definitely ready for the Premier League now," Mandaric told the Leicester Mercury. "If we had done it the first year, or even last year, I would have said no, but a lot of work has been done and it is a work in progress.

"We have the base now that is ready. If we got into the Premier League I would be quite comfortable that we can push on. I think we are a very solid Championship club in a strong position - far stronger than when I took over, I can promise you that.

"We need a bit of luck for the rest of the season but the club is equipped now with the right management, on and off the field, to get into the Premier League.

"Of course we will look at the playing staff as well but the club has the facilities and tremendous support of people who deserve to be in the Premier League and I hope that happens one day."
