Despite Leicester trouncing Sevilla 3-2 on aggregate in the Champions League last night, there are still some who aren't so easy to forgive their merciless sacking of the Tinker Man who got them there.

Graeme Souness soured the atmosphere following their historic win by tearing into the players and giving them a harsh reminder they are still 15th in the Premier League and not safe from relegation.

The former Liverpool manager spoke candidly about his feelings on the Leicester players conspiring to get rid of Ranieri, saying: "Look, when you're a manager and you've won the league, are you going to turn up the next season and change things? If it ain't broken, why fix it?"

"They would have been doing the same training, talking to them the same way, preparing, travelling, everything the same way," he added. "Some of those players believed, all of a sudden, at the start of the season 'Oh, we're big players, we're league champions' and took their foot off the accelerator and got comfy in their big armchairs and got their Bentley in the car-park and maybe changed their house."
