Ranieri spoke of his sacking by the Foxes yesterday and was asked if it was the players who influenced the decision.
He told L'Equipe: "If I was sacked by the players? No, by the results. I do not believe in this story. And even if it were true, it would not be my problem, it would be the problem of the players.
"If they did, what I do not think is a problem for them, because when I had a problem with a coach, I was going to talk to him to the face. In Leicester, nobody ever came to tell me anything."
