- Former Leciester City boss Claudio Ranieri does not think his former players influenced his sack
- The Italian manager admits not everyone at the club supported him but he trusted his players
- The 65 year old led Leciester City to their first ever EPL title but was sacked the season after
Former Leicester City boss Claudio Raineri believes he was not betrayed by players at Leciester City.
The Italian however admits that he did not have the support of everyone at the club.
The 65-year-old won the Premier League for the Foxes last season but failed to impress this season.
He was sacked by the club but believes his players were not part of the conspiracy leading to his sack.
"Maybe it was someone behind me. I had a little problem the year before and we won the title. Maybe this year, when we lose, these people push a little more,” he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.
When asked whether key players like Vardy and Schmeichel were responsible for his sack? The Italian manager said: "I can't believe my players killed me. No, no, no."
The Italian was named the 2015/2016 Premier League manager of the season for his feat with the Foxes last season.
He was however sacked by Leciester City earlier this after his team were 1 point away from relegation zone.
Leciester City fans will always remain grateful to the Italian manager who led the Foxes to their first ever Premier League title.
