‘I Shed a Tear’: Gary Lineker’s emotional reaction to Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester sacking (Audio)

Ranieri sacked

Premier League managers are today reeling from the news that Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Leicester City.

Given how highly regarded he is among his colleagues, and his title-winning achievement at Leicester, the news has been met with absolute shock within the Premier League.

Indeed, Jose Mourinho was so taken aback by the news that he paid homage to the Italian at his press conference today.

Lineker shed a tear

Another man who has been particularly moved by the news is Gary Lineker.

A former Foxes player, Lineker has always proclaimed himself a Leicester fan first and foremost, despite also playing for more glamourous clubs like Spurs and Barcelona.

The MOTD presenter gave his reaction to Ranieri’s sacking on BBC Radio last night, admitting that he shed a tear over the Italian’s departure.
