“The advantage they have until the end of the season, apart from our fans and the City fans and Tottenham fans, the rest of the country is behind Leicester.
“You reproach me about not buying big names but you will support the team who have no big names,” he said.

“Leicester are a fantastic example that football is not only about just spending the money.
