Mourinho: Ranieri deserves credit.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has praised Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri ahead of his side's clash with the Foxes at the King Power stadium.

A win for Leicester, who have been in flying form this season, will take them back to the top of the Premier League table.

However, Mourinho hailed the Italian, saying he ‘deserves the credit’.

‘We have to all try to be fair to the managers,’ he said. ‘When things go wrong the media kill the managers so when things go well, give them credit.

‘In the same way it is: “Sack Monk, sack Mourinho , sack everyone that is not doing well”, in his case Claudio deserves the credit, or otherwise when things go wrong it is about managers and when things go well it is about players, so put Claudio where he deserves to be.’
