LEICESTER City supporters are physically unable to jeer Claudio Ranieri, however bad results get.
During Leicester’s 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United, a strange wailing sound echoed around the King Power Stadium as fans unsuccessfully attempted to boo their hero.
Roy Hobbs said: “I tried to show my discontent, but my vocal chords wouldn’t allow me. All I could do was emit this strained mewling sound.
“The team is in free fall, the players have lost belief, the tactics are all wrong – Ranieri has to go, but dear God I love him more than any other human on Earth.
“Even if Ranieri leads us down to the Conference I still won’t be able to boo him any more than I’ll be able to remove my tattoo or tell my son he’s not called Claudio.”
At Leicester’s FA Cup replay against Derby, fans had planned to unveil a ‘Ranieri Out’ banner, but the supporter in charge of painting it could not help putting ‘Ranieri Outstanding’.
Claudio Ranieri said: “After winning the title I have the freedom of Leicester and I’m taking that literally.
“If I choose to disband the club and replace it with a ballet company the fans have no choice but to turn up to Swan Lake.”
