Former Blackburn Rovers striker Chris Sutton who won the league title in his first season at Ewood Park in 1994/95 believes Leicester City are taking a “huge risk” by keeping Claudio Ranieri as their manager.
Now a TV pundit, the 43-year-old told BBC Radio 5 live.
“I don’t see how Ranieri can keep his job,”
“Had they finished 12th last season and they were on this run of form, everyone would be saying he has to go.”
If City get relegated, they would be the first defending top-flight champions to be relegated since Manchester City in 1938.
They have not won a Premier League game in 2017 or even scored a league goal 45 days into the New Year.
“Football is a ruthless business. The players are not playing for him,” added Sutton.
“I think they are in absolutely enormous trouble.”
