Manchester United Legend Eric Cantona Claims Leicester City Traitors Treated Claudio Ranieri Like A ‘Flee Infested Dog’
The Italian was sacked last month after he guided the Foxes to a maiden Premier League title.
Leicester had a great fall this season as they battled relegation before the Italian got the axe.
The former France international went on a rant in defence of Ranieri.
Cantona said that Leicester City treated the former Chelsea boss like a ‘flea-infested dog’.
The controversial but iconic retired footballer said: “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.”
He then went on to say that Leicester are where they deserve to be, languishing at the bottom of the table.
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 a**.”
“Hey, you kicked greatness out of the door and all you are left with is a coach named Shakespeare.”
