"For me, at this moment, we've had a brilliant win today. So my concentration is very much with Leicester".
"I've been very fortunate in my career to work with some brilliant clubs and some great institutions and coming to here, this was an ambition to come here to help the club arrive in the top six. Me, I'm just concentrating on Leicester". I came here to help the project and see if we could bring it forward.
