The blame game is well and truly underway at Leicester as the Foxes dangle just a point above the relegation zone.
Claudio Ranieri has gone from king of the Premier League last May to a man under severe pressure, with frequent reports of dressing room unrest.
Last season marked the end of his days as the ‘tinkerman’. Leicester found a system that worked and stuck with it, but it was inevitable that it couldn’t last forever.
Amid their struggles this term, the Italian has tinkered and tinkered again, making numerous on and off-field changes. It seems the manager has lost his confidence, and as a result, his players have started to doubt him too.
The Mirror report that senior stars are unhappy with his latest bizarre decision to axe their favourite post-match meal of chicken burgers from the canteen menu.
The players are now on the pasta instead, and it’s not just about the burgers themselves.
Ranieri’s overthinking is reportedly becoming unpopular, as his side often don’t understand his ever-changing systems and tactics, which have been different almost every week. The club are clearly well aware that they’re staring relegation in the face.
