Vardy 'had death threats' over Ranieri sacking

Jamie Vardy and Claudio Ranieri in discussion

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy says he has received death threats and his family have been targeted since Claudio Ranieri was sacked as manager.

The 30-year-old blamed “hurtful” and “false” accusations he influenced the club’s decision to sack the Italian.

Ranieri left in February, nine months after winning the Premier League, with the club 17th in the table. His successor, Craig Shakespeare, later denied reports of a player revolt.
