Leicester City became the latest club to claim that they didn’t really want the Premiership trophy ‘after what Chelsea had done to it’.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri told reporters that his team had dropped points against West Brom as they were no longer interested in lifting the humorous, Lineker-lookalike Premiership trophy.
Ranieri claimed he had just been made aware that Chelsea had acted ‘improperly’ with the trophy, in an incident which apparently put Leicester players’ own racist, coke-fuelled, prostitute orgy to shame.
One source told us, ‘What they did to that poor trophy… Fabregas, Hazard and Costa…Oh Costa was the worst of course… They just wouldn’t stop. The damned little trophy never saw it coming’.
The source refused to elaborate further.
The Foxes manager is not alone in his decision. Instead, Ranieri is the latest of many to decide that the shame of inheriting Chelsea’s sloppy seconds would be too much to handle. It’s thought that Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini were also made aware of an additional incident involving Mourinho, the trophy, and a bar of soap – causing them both to refuse mounting meaningful title challenges.
Meanwhile, Tottenham players seem relatively unconcerned about the infamous incidents, although Dele Alli is thought to have injured himself in a desperate plea for some small show of dignity from his teammates.
