Here's how Leicester can earn pizza and 'maybe a hot dog' this weekend

The in-form Foxes currently lie second in the Premier League table.

Leicester have started the season impressively following Claudio Ranieri's appointment in the summer.

IN-FORM LEICESTER have been given an unusual incentive ahead of their Premier League encounter with Stoke this weekend.

The Foxes, who currently lie second in the table, have a difficult game at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

However, manager Claudio Ranieri has offered to buy the team pizza if they keep a clean sheet — something they have not managed this season so far despite their overall success.

“I want to pay a pizza for a clean sheet. When we get one I pay for pizza and maybe a hot dog,” the Leicester boss told reporters.

On the side’s success, he pointed to their speedy counter-attack as one reason for their overachievement to date: “My team is like the RAF [Royal Air Force]….beep, beep, beep, I love it.

“When you want to build something, it’s about the club. The head of the fish. Everyone works together. That’s the secret.”
