Vardy got death threats after Ranieri sacking
LONDON: England and Leicester striker Jamie Vardy says his alleged role in getting Claudio Ranieri sacked after a terrible slump in form placed the champions in danger of relegation has earned him and his family death threats.
The 30-year-old — whose goals last season helped Leicester to the title and the one time non-league player a place in the England team — added it was barely credible the only punishment the perpetrators of the threats on Twitter received was a slap on the wrist.
“I read one story that said it (the meeting between several senior players and the club owner over Ranieri) was straight after the Sevilla game (a 2-1 first leg last 16 Champions League defeat in Spain which saw the Italian sacked soon after).
“It said I was personally involved in a meeting when I was actually sat in antidoping for three hours,” said
