Claudio Ranieri admits Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Leicester was the right result and says he is pleased with the point
Claudio Ranieri felt Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Leicester at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night was the right result.
Aboubakar Kamara’s first Premier League goal was cancelled out by James Maddison in the second half as Fulham remain in the relegation zone.
Ranieri has registered one win in his three matches in charge of the west London club, and he believes a draw against his old side was fair on the balance of play.
“I am pleased with a point because I think the draw is right; they had two great chances at the beginning,” he told Sky Sports.
“The second half was much better for us at the beginning. We score a goal and the match was in our hands but Leicester reacted very well.
“They scored a goal and at 1-0 we had two chances to score again. If I remember well they had three great chances to win the match. At the end we had the chance with Denis Odoi to score a goal, so in the end it was the right result.”

Even though Fulham perhaps should have won the game had Odoi not spurned a glorious chance in added time, Ranieri insists his side are showing signs of improvement.
He added: “Both teams played to win the match. I saw good improvement from my players.
“We made mistakes but if you analyse very well all the teams make little mistakes. We will have to continue to work hard because sooner or later we will win.
“When we have the ball we are ready to play and when we lose the ball we are ready to press. That for me is very important.”
