Frustrated Ranieri doesn't know what to do

Fortunately for the foxes, they had already secured the top spot in Group G or they would've really gotten into deep trouble. They really need to wake up as they are entering the most crucial part of the Champions League as complete rookies: the knock-out stage. But this Wednesday's performance was arguably the lowest point in this season for Leicester City, they suffered a horrible loss against Porto and are in total free fall. 

Ranieri was fuming after the game: "We can lose, but I want us to show our character and our strength. We didn't do that well enough tonight. We wanted to see something different tonight, but it was too easy for Porto to score. The result is my fault because I decided to change the team. I don't regret it, but some players missed their chance. I'm sad for our fans. They deserved more. I didn't see what I have seen in training on the pitch tonight. But I have a clearer idea about my players now. We need to focus on the Premier League and change our position."

When asked if getting relegated was something that worried him, he said: "Never, because it's not my decision. The owner is always behind us, he always tells us how he can help us and is always positive. Of course, he's not happy – no one at the club is. When we win, we win together. When we lose, we lose together. My experience says it's important to stay calm and be positive, believe in your players and do the best for your team."
