The Foxes’ title-winning manager deserved better from Leicester’s players and the club’s ungracious owners
It was the headline in Gazzetta dello Sport that jumped out from the news stands on the morning after the kind of newsflash that made it easy to understand what Gareth Southgate meant when he talked about loving the sport but not necessarily liking it. Claudio Ranieri had become another managerial statistic and it was quickly becoming apparent there were players at Leicester City who would be glad to see the back of him. “Inglesi Ingrati,” was the verdict in capital letters on the front page of Italy’s biggest-selling sports daily.
A touch rich, you might think, in the country where some of the more trigger-happy football club owners are known as mangia-allenatore –translation: manager-eaters – and, strictly speaking, the decision to overthrow Ranieri was taken from Bangkok rather than Braunstone or Beaumont Leys.
