Jamie Carragher is worried that the Leicester City fairy tale will have a nightmare ending. The Liverpool legend was speaking on Monday Night Football about the champions’ current plight. They have 13 points from their opening 14 games and hover two points above the relegation zone. How would an immediate demotion affect that title legacy?
What’s gone wrong?
It would lend more credibility to the argument that it was a fluke. But Leicester played good football last season and have managed to impress in the Champions League, topping their group. Admittedly, it is a weak group. They managed to keep almost all of their stars apart from N’Golo Kante. Where are his new team? Top of the league.
But even if Kante was the key man who gave them balance, it shouldn’t diminish their ability to this extent. The Foxes are playing with a strange mentality domestically and Claudio Ranieri has to sort it out. Hear Carragher below.
