The sacking of football managers is not new to the world of football. In this cut-throat world, the managers are no longer the bosses. Managers go due to a variety of reasons – Bad results, or losing the dressing room or threat of relegation. Despite all these, Claudio Ranieri’s sacking left a sour taste for football fans across the world. The message was loud and clear – The fans did not approve of the decision from Thai bosses.

Ranieri sacking is a joke. Players have completely let him down and believed their on hype.!

Leicester vs Liverpool was shocking in every way possible. Very few expected the Foxes to come out all guns blazing. The same Leicester performance a fortnight ago would have been enough to save the Italian’s job. So it is only natural that a win of this magnitude immediately after the sack, raises doubts over players letting underperforming to get the manager sacked. It is justified to say that few fans did leave the stadium with a heavy heart for they resonate with the Italian’s view – “My dream died”
Wow. What a goal from Drinkwater. Feels like Leicester's players have a point to prove.

This Leicester performance says to me that the players did go behind Ranieri's back and they clearly downed tools over the past few months

Vardy playing like David Villa and Drinkwater evoking memories of Zidane but there was no player revolt at Leicester? Jokers.

The Leicester fans will be hoping that they can move on and survive the relegation battle. The start to life without Claudio Ranieri was better than expected, or should we say bitter than expected.
