New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will leave his imprint just like Alex Ferguson did, Claudio Ranieri believes.
The Portuguese returns to the English Premier League to join the likes of Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger in what is expected to be one of the most fascinating races in the domestic league.
And the Leicester City boss is wary of the threat Mourinho and the other managers will pose to his team next season.
"Mourinho can be the new Ferguson," Ranieri told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"He will not stay 26 years, but he will leave his imprint.
"Antonio [Conte] and Chelsea are made for each other. [Pep] Guardiola seems to be the right man in the right place.
"[As for us,] the goal to start with is the threshold of 40 points to survive.
"Then we will raise the bar: getting in the top 10, the Europa League, a place in the Champions League and maybe win a trophy from the five in which we will play."
