Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy have claimed he received death threats, with his family have been targeted since former coach, Claudio Ranieri, was sacked.

It can be recalled that Claudio Ranieri was sacked in February, nine months after fairytale Premier league win against all odds.

However, his successor, Craig Shakespeare, later denied reports of a player revolt.

Calling it “hurtful” and “false”, the 30-year-old striker said,”It is terrifying. I read one story that said I was personally involved in a meeting after the Sevilla game when I was actually sat in anti-doping for three hours.

“But then the story is out there, people pick it up and jump on it and you’re getting death threats about your family, kids, everything.”

Vardy said he was able to “get on with it” but added: “When people are trying to cut your missus up while she’s driving, with the kids in the back of the car, it’s not the best.”
