Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy revealed he has recieved series of death threat after the club sacked Record making manager Claudio Rianeri.

The Italian manager delieverd Leicester City’s first ever premier league title in remarkable fashion in the 2015/16 season but was sacked 8 months later.

Jamie Vardy said he and other senior players weren’t involved in the decision to sack the Italian contrary to the reports in the media stating he and other senior players met with owner that led to it.

According to BBC sports some Leic-ester players were summoned to meet the club’s chairman after a 2-1 Champions League defeat by Sevilla, and Ranieri’s fate was sealed by the negative reaction.

As quoted by BBC Sport: “It is terrifying,” Vardy said.

“I read one story that said I was personally involved in a meeting after the Sevilla game when I was actually sat in anti-doping for three hours.

“But then the story is out there, people pick it up and jump on it and you’re getting death threats about your family, kids, everything.”

Vardy said he was able toget on with itbut added: “When people are trying to cut your missus up while she’s driving, with the kids in the back of the car, it’s not the best.”

“If there was an issue, you went and did it in the gaffer’s office or you went and did it on the tactics board, because he was happy for you to come in and put your opinion across,” Vardy added of Ranieri’s time in charge.

“The stories were quite hurtful to be honest with you. A lot of false accusations were being thrown out there and there was nothing we, as players, could do about it.

“We just had to put it to the back of our minds and concentrate on the football.”
