Slaven Bilic slams Leicester for 'bad decision' to sack Claudio Ranieri

Slaven Bilic slams Leicester for 'bad decision' to sack Claudio Ranieri

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble believes that they play under a manager who gives 100 per cent every time and if the players do not do so it is his responsibility as a skipper to tell them to pull their socks up.

After a series of poor results had plunged Leicester into relegation trouble, the Foxes made a decision to sack manager Claudio Ranieri - despite the Italian winning the Premier League last season.

"We have to improve and bounce back".

"You've got to stick at it, the players have dug in and over the last couple of months it's been really good". We are under pressure and we know we have to win the game.

Craig Shakespeare, initially caretaker manager but now installed until the end of the season, Leicester have beaten Liverpool and Hull City in the Premier League to ease their relegation fears, and they also beat Sevilla 2-0 on Tuesday evening to advance into the last eight of the Champions League.

"Obviously the move to the new stadium and a move to a new training ground, the Dimi situation, so much has gone on and we lost four of our best players to injury in pre-season, which is hard to replace".

"But it's that kind of job, it's the nature of the job. Now no one can say it was the wrong decision".

That news has attracted the attention of Irons boss Slaven Bilic, who is keen to sign a new attacker in the summer because of a lack of goals for his side this term, as well as the continued fitness doubts over Andy Carroll.
