Claudio Ranieri's Leicester career in pictures

The Fulham boss will welcome his former club Leicester to Craven Cottage on Wednesday.

Claudio Ranieri will face his former club Leicester for the first time since his dismissal when Fulham host the Foxes on Wednesday.

Ranieri famously guided 5000-1 outsiders Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016 on the back of a solid team spirit, the goals of striker Jamie Vardy and the form of bargain signings like N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at Ranieri's time at Leicester in pictures.
