McMahon slams Ranieri: Leicester a fluke!

Former Liverpool captain Steve McMahon has slammed Claudio Ranieri over his problems at Fulham.

McMahon says Scott Parker should've been given the job after the sacking of Slavisa Jokanovic - and not the Italian.

He said, "Why didn't they give it to him first time around?

"Why Ranieri? OK, he did fantastic with Leicester, but that was a fluke – and everyone has seen that.

"Give him [Parker] the chance. He could have had seven or eight more games to see if he could turn it around and build for next season.

"He is young, enthusiastic, probably has loads of respect in the dressing room. My question would be, is he too nice?

"His [Ranieri's] reward for being sacked at Fulham is Roma. How do you work that one out?"
