Kasper Schmeichel is one of the ‘best’ says Claudio Ranieri

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has heaped praise on his star goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel following his sides 0-0 draw with FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League yesterday evening.

Ranieri hailed Schmeichel as Europes best goalkeeper in his post-match interview, according to the Mirror.

The Foxes maintained their unbeaten run in the competition and are yet to concede a single goal with Schmeichel between the posts.

The Denmark international made a string of important saves to keep the home side at bay. Schmeichel was also the star of the show a fortnight ago when Leicester defeated Copenhagen at the King Power stadium.

“I love my players and it’s difficult for me to say no. I always say yes, yes, yes. My players are the best,” Ranieri was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“It was a very good save, if they score they win the match.

“Kasper is fantastic, I have coached a lot of big champions in goal, Kasper is one of these. He has had two perfect seasons.

“Kasper, this is my second year, has always made good performances. I am very calm when Kasper is in goal. He is strong, assured and commands the defensive line. He is a very good goalkeeper.”

Leicester City take on West Brom in the Premier League this weekend as they look to maintain their unbeaten run.

Ranieri’s side have avoided defeat in their last five games and find themselves in 11th place in the Premier League with12 points after ten games.
