Leicester City: Fans question why Tottneham’s players aren’t getting stick like their’s

Many Leicester City fans have discussed why Tottenham Hotspur’s players haven’t had the same backlash as some of their players did when Claudio Ranieri was sacked in 2017.

Can you compare Ranieri and Pochettino in their sackings?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At the time of Ranieri’s departure, there was criticism from places like the Independent. Indeed, Ian Herbert even described it as a ‘disgusting act of felony’ and the Telegraph reported at the time that some players were angered by his methods towards the end despite winning the Premier League title in 2016.

Well over two years on from the incident and something of a similar ilk has happened down in North London. While Spurs reaching the Champions League final isn’t quite the Foxes winning the Premier League, it is still a monumental achievement, and there’s an argument both have been victims of their own success, something argued by the Independent recently.

The season after the year of greatly overachieving is always going to be harder. Your expectations have risen and sometimes they can be too difficult to uphold – especially in modern-day football where managers do not tend to last more than a few seasons.

A Leicester fan on Twitter, @mnorman1985, asked why Spurs’ players aren’t getting the same level of criticism for their role in getting the manager sacked.

Here are some of the responses below…
