Why Musa Started Ahead Of England Star Vardy? Leicester City Boss ExplainsLeicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has explained why he had to bring in Super Eagles striker Ahmed Musa and Okazaki in his starting XI ahead of Three Lions ace Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s win over Crystal Palace.

The Italian manager confirmed that Vardy is not injured as he made the bench, but he had to start his number seven because he impressed in training ahead of the fixture at the King Power Stadium.

“I left out Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani at Chelsea, and today it was Vardy. It was normal because we have to play some many matches,” Ranieri said.

“When you see in the training session Musa and Okazaki in good condition then you have to put them on the pitch.

“It wasn’t an injury because if Jamie was injured he wouldn’t have been on the bench and come on to play.”

While Musa has started three games in the English top-flight so far this season, the Foxes top scorer in the 2015-2016 campaign Vardy has made the starting XI eight times.
