Prandelli turned down Leicester over Ranieri sacking
Former Italy boss Cesare Prandell has revealed he turned down an approach from Leicester City after how the club treated his compatriot Claudio Ranieri.
And Prandelli, who resigned from his post as Valencia boss after just 10 games in December 2016, confirmed that he was approached by the English champions.
“New coaches should study his situation. In two or three months, what happened cannot happen,” Prandelli told SFR Sport.
“Subconsciously, the team clearly gave less and worked less than it could’ve done. That is why it’s important for a club and directors to not leave all the responsibility on the shoulders of the coach, otherwise this happens.”
Since Ranieri’s dismissal, Leicester have won all four outings under caretaker boss Craig Shakespeare – progressing into the quarter-finals of the Champions League while moving six points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.
