Watford boss Ranieri on Leicester return: There'll big emotion

Watford boss Claudio Ranieri is ready to return to Leicester City this weekend.

The veteran Italian, who was appointed at Vicarage Road last month, is due back at his former club for the first time as an opposing manager on Sunday afternoon.

Ranieri defied pre-season odds of 5,000-1 to mastermind one of sport's greatest stories when the Foxes became shock champions in 2016.

“Always this Premier League (title) will be in my heart during all my life," said Ranieri.

“The job gave to me good emotion and I am very proud to be part of Leicester's fairytale and history, very happy.

“But I want to write new things here in Watford.

“It will be a big emotion from the beginning and after the match, during the match I know I am an opponent and I try to do my best."
