Football fans were taken aback this week when news of Claudio Ranieri’s sacking began to filter through early this week.

Almost immediately after the news broke, rumours of a players revolt began to circulate online, with suggestions that a cartel of senior players forced Ranieri out of the club.

Such stories were given a great deal substance when The Times reported Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan, Marc Albrighton and Jamie Vardy had met with Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, following their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Sevilla in the Champions League.

Although it wasn’t explicitly stated that the players involved led a heave against the popular manager, The Times believe they were asked “for their observations on the team’s decline from last season’s Premier League triumph”.

However, in a statement published on his Instagram account, Jamie Vardy has denied being part of any revolt against the manager, describing any such accusations as being “completely untrue, unfounded” and “extremely hurtful”.
