Claudio Ranieri & Leicester sacking rumours
The fallout from Leicester City’s decision to sack Claudio Ranieri on Thursday night continues to make headlines.
On Saturday, The Times highlighted four players that were behind the move.
The Times reveal the four players who met with the owners following the midweek Champions League defeat to Sevilla: Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton.
Jamie Vardy has not taken kindly to this suggestion and on Saturday night posted on Instagram a lengthy statement.
The critical line in Vardy’s social media update read:
There is speculation I was involved in his dismissal and this completely untrue, unfounded and is extremely hurtful!

Becky Vardy gets involved
Vardy’s wife, Becky Vardy, has also throw in her two cents on Saturday night on Instagram. She advised her followers:
Don’t believe everything you read….and don’t become the ‘idiot’.
She also attached a meme which read “rumours are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.”
