Ranieri patient with summer signing

Ranieri patient with summer signing

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri says summer signing Ahmed Musa is still adapting to life in England.

Musa arrived in a £16million deal from CSKA Moscow and made a mark in pre-season with a strike in a friendly defeat to Barcelona.

That goal against the Catalan giants and his hefty price-tag suggested Musa would play a big role this season but the Nigeria international has managed just one league start to date this term, as well as three appearances from the bench.

Ranieri says he felt the need to be patient with Musa but has indicated the 23-year-old forward can expect more game tome in the coming weeks.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "He is working very well, but he is adapting now.

"When I watch him in the training sessions, he now understands, it is tough, but I had to choose.

"But I think sooner or later, he will come back and he will play."
