Social media has reacted to Leicester City’s 3-1 win against Liverpool. Former Leicester striker Gary Lineker was among the first to respond to champions’ first match of the post-Claudio Ranieri era.
The win ended a run of five straight defeats for Leicester and social media questioned why it took until Ranieri’s sacking for the players to produce a performance like that.
There were reports – which have been denied by Leicester’s players – that Ranieri was sacked on the back of a players meeting with the owners.
Majority of social media users were on the side of Ranieri’s, with many pointing out how suspicious it was that the player’s only showed their Premier League-winning form once Ranieri had gone.
