Evil Schmeichel denies the influence of players on the dismissal Ranieri
Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel called the rumors that a group of experienced players influence on the resignation of manager Claudio Ranieri as “ridiculous” and “painful”.
“Our owners talk very often with the players, but at no point have they asked for advice on the future of the manager,” said the 30-year-old Schmeichel Saturday against Sky Sports.
The same media reported Friday, a day after the surprising resignation of Ranieri at the reigning English champion, that experienced players of Leicester after the lost Champions League match with Sevilla at the Thai owners had said that they are not happy more with the Italian.

“That are harmful messages,” says Schmeichel. “I can as a player of this club only say that I and the rest of the players do not have any influence on a decision like this. Our owners are successful business people who have already many decisions have been taken in their professional career.”
“It hurts to read that we as players have a role they would have played in the dismissal of Ranieri. It is ridiculous to think that a player at any club in England so much would influence.”

Ranieri took Saturday morning at the training complex of Leicester City bid farewell to the cast of actors. “Claudio thanked the players for their commitment and for last season,” said Schmeichel. “He is a very likeable man, he thanked each player and each member of the technical staff separately.”
“No one likes to see someone lose his job. I have only respect and feel only gratitude for Claudio and what he does for this club has done. We as players look at ourselves, because we have this season has not performed well. As simple as that.”
Ranieri surprised last season, friend and enemy, and by the ‘Foxes’ to the first national championship in the 133-year-old club history to lead, but this year’s going to be a lot less with Leicester.
The reigning champion stands by the victory of Crystal Palace on Saturday at Middlesbrough (1-0) on the eighteenth place in the Premier League, a place that at the end of the season, relegation means. Leicester has a match less played than the competition, a thuisduel with Liverpool on Monday.
