Ranieri has Nantes being compared with his Leicester title winners

Nantes coach Claudio Ranieri is quickly driving his new club up the Ligue 1 table.

The former Leicester City boss has Nantes now sitting sixth and drawing comparisons with his title winning team.

"The most important thing is to be well organized. I'm focused on the fact that everyone has to defend well and gently we have to improve our game when we have the ball and move more towards the attack because I do not like playing much behind," said Ranieri after victory over Strasbourg.

"This victory is important for confidence. It was very difficult, for Strasbourg has moved a lot, made many crosses and looked for free kicks, corners ... We suffered a lot, but we won and the winner is right."
