Ranieri: "It was too easy for Porto to score."

Claudio Ranieri was disappointed with how his Foxes fell to Porto at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday night. The Italian questioned the character of his Leicester City side after they became the first Premier League club to suffer the heaviest defeat in the history of the Champions League. Andre Silva's brace, and strikes from Jesus Corona, Yacine Brahimi and Diogo Jota, secured a 5-0 triumph for the Portuguese club over the Group G leaders Leicester.

However, speaking after the clash, Ranieri said as the Mirror reported: "We can lose, but I want us to show our character and our strength. We didn't do that well enough tonight.

"We wanted to see something different tonight, but it was too easy for Porto to score. "The result is my fault because I decided to change the team. I don't regret it, but some players missed their chance. "I'm sad for our fans. They deserved more. I didn't see what I have seen in training on the pitch tonight. "But I have a clearer idea about my players now. We need to focus on the Premier League and change our position." The Premier League champions take on Manchester City this weekend at the King Power stadium.
