Claudio Ranieri insists he has moved on from his time with Leicester after being unveiled as the new coach of Nantes.

The Italian led the Foxes to a remarkable Premier League title triumph in 2016 but was sacked in February with the club just one point above the relegation zone.

Ranieri is now back in management with the Ligue 1 side and spoke of his desire to leave his time at Leicester in the past during his press conference.

"It was fantastic to win the title with Leicester," Ranieri told "The love that people showed me was fantastic.

"The motivation is always very strong. My love for football and the players are always very strong. The ground I miss a lot.
