• Former manager refuses to blame his Leicester players
• Ranieri says it was difficult to motivate his champions
Claudio Ranieri has offered a passionate defence of his former Leicester City players, denying they forced him out.
Ranieri was sacked in February, less than a year after transforming a team of 5,000-1 outsiders into Premier League champions and, following his exit, rumours of a dressing-room mutiny were rife. However, while speaking to Sky Sports during the Monday Night Football show, the Italian refused to blame the players but did admit they were difficult to motivate following their title glory.
