Leicester City have not had the start to their season that they would have wanted to this year but one fan believes it is already time to oust the Italian.
Claudio Ranieri led Leicester City to the most improbably English title in history last season, but according to one fan he seems to already believe that it is time for the club to make a change.
The Foxes are sitting in the lower half of the Premier League table only a whisker away from the relegation battle zone having had perhaps the worst start to a title defense campaign in history.
However, despite that they have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 with a game in hand and are living a double life in terms of form that is almost baffling.
Claudio Ranieri has already called for his side to continue to fight on and the results will come, but it seems that for some fans it is just not good enough this season as one disgruntled fan recently called into BBC Radio wanting the club to bring back Nigel Pearson.
But, former Derby legend Robbie Savage was quick to come to the defense of Ranieri immidiately calling out the fan for his comments:
"More from Foxes of LeicesterEnzo Maresca hails four star Leicester playersHarry Winks reveals his easy decision to join LeicesterSouthampton 1-4 Leicester City: 3 Foxes positives and negativesSouthampton 1-4 Leicester: 3 things learnedPredicted Leicester City starting XI vs Southampton“Oh be quiet! What are you talking about? You cannot be serious! Team spirit? They just won the league 12/13 games ago, they just qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League.I think you’re talking absolute nonsense. You’re 13th in the Premier League, you’re champions and you’ve qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and you’re saying bring back Nigel Pearson.”"
There is still plenty of time for the Foxes to make a turnaround this season. With no need to worry about the next Champions League fixture coming next week, Ranieri can focus all of his attention of the coming mass of December fixtures for the club.
Between December 3rd and the end of the month, the Foxes have six league games in 28 days and Ranieri will have to rotate his squad to get the most out of his side and if fans think the, “tinker man,” as he was nicknamed many years ago is certain to be making some changes in the coming weeks to try and get the best out of his side.
Come January of 2017, we will know a whole lot more about what type of fight the Foxes still have left in them.
