Although Leicester have performed superbly in the Champions League, domestically they have struggled to match the displays, and are now sitting close to the relegation zone.

“It’s unbelievable, top of the group. I am very happy and very proud for my players, very happy for the chairman and the fans. It’s another journey through to the knockout – unbelievable.”

“It’s very important to top the group, now our minds must go on the Premier League. I want to push my players to think about the Premier League now our job is done.

“Now we have to go back into the Premier League as we are very close to the relegation zone and we must play at the same level of the Champions League.”
