Foxes have winning mentality - Cam.

ESTEBAN Cambiasso believes Leicester's winners can rival the Inter Milan dressing room mentality.

The former Argentina mid-fielder is primed to make his home debut against Manchester United today.

An impressive 45-minute cameo at Stoke last week helped the Foxes to a 1-0 win - their first of the season and first in the top flight since 2004.

The summer arrival, a free transfer after he left Inter, has won La Liga, the Champions League and five Serie A titles And Cambiasso believes the Foxes have a similar mindset to him and his previous clubs.

He said: "I think Leicester City has this winning mentality. When you have been in the Premier League for maybe nine or 10 years, maybe you have another mentality.

"But when you are promoted to the Premier League it's because you have been winning matches.

"Leicester City's manager and the players possess this winning mentality.

"It's not possible to change the mentality you had last April A or May for a totally different one in August or A September.

"The mentality of my teammates is to win because last year they needed to win most of their matches to go up."

Leicester are level on points with United ahead of their King Power Stadium clash after an impressive start.

But Cambiasso believes United's revival is only a matter of time under Louis van Gaal.

"Manchester United is Manchester United. Every player is good. Their last season is now in the past - but they need just time now," said the 34-yearold.

"I respect them because they are a big club."
