The Italian tactician was at his jovial best as he pleaded with the Sky Sports reporter to stop reminding him as the painful list went on.

Nevertheless, the Foxes have plenty of games prior to that tough run of games with Arsenal visiting the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Leicester currently sit in fourth spot in the Premier League after an impressive start to the campaign, and Ranieri revealed to the media, as reported by Sky Sports, that he has now found the right balance and chemistry with his players.
The former Chelsea boss insisted that the squad knows his personality in the sense that he will joke with them when the time is right, but they also know when to be serious and train hard.
Ranieri remains a popular figure in England, particularly with the media, but he will hope that his side can sustain their early form and maintain a place in the top half of the table at least running up to Christmas when they will undoubtedly have their credentials tested thoroughly.
