Eric Cantona has lashed out at Leicester City for their decision to part ways with Claudio Ranieri
Former Manchester United and France striker, Eric Cantona believes Leicester City were ungrateful for their decision to sack Claudio Ranieri, who managed to put together a group of less-fancied players to win the English Premier League.
The Italian manager propelled Leicester City to their first topflight league title last season, but was fired in the second half of the ongoing season, after struggling all season.
Eric Cantona has poured out his anger at Daniel Amartey and his Leicester City teammates such as Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, calling them half-talented players.
He told Eurosport: “The magician came into a town and transformed a bunch of half-talented football players into glorious champions but when the first clouds appeared the ungrateful brats conspired to get the magician sent away – traitors.
“Leicester have actually fired the only coach that made them win anything significant in their unremarkable history.
“When they are back at the end of the food chain they get rid of poor Claudio as if he was a flea-infested dog.”
Cantona brutally added that Leicester are exactly where they deserve to be; languishing near the foot of the Premier League.
He added: “Foxes. Seventeenth place of the Football League championship – it’s what you are. It’s your DNA.
“You aspire to greatness but you wouldn’t know greatness if it bit you in the ass.
“Hey, you kicked greatness out of the door and all you are left with is a coach named Shakespeare.”
