Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs has admitted that he and his teammates might have inadvertently played a part in the sacking of former boss Claudio Ranieri.
The Austria international said: “We were maybe over-motivated, and we wanted to prove just why we are the reigning champions.
“There were spells when we played with fancy flourishes, back-heels and special finishes, simply to show what we can do.”
“We were no longer pragmatic, and we unintentionally neglected to do the basics.
“There were no conversations between the club’s bosses and the players about getting rid of Claudio Ranieri.
Since the Italian’s sacking the Foxes have improved winning the last four in all competitions including a huge 2-0 victory over Sevilla to enter the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League.
