Nantes coach Ranieri: Did Leicester players get me sacked?!

Nantes coach Claudio Ranieri insists he didn't lose the locker room at Leicester City.

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."
