WATCH: Jamie Carragher Sums Up Perfectly What's Wrong With Ranieri Sacking

WATCH: Jamie Carragher Sums Up Perfectly What's Wrong With Ranieri Sacking

And modern football in general...

The discussions about Claudio Ranieri's dismissal from Leicester City last week continues to rumble on, with Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville weighing into the debate on Monday Night Football, tonight.

For the most part, there has been an outpouring of sympathy for the Italian, who so memorably led Leicester City to Premier League glory, last season, only to be fired following an extremely difficult second season in charge at the King Power Stadium.

There have been those people who felt the opposite and believed Ranieri was on borrowed time after a dismal run of results that has left the Foxes in the relegation zone.

Jamie Carragher, however, believes Ranieri's sacking by Leicester sums up everything that's wrong about modern football - the effect money has had on the game.

"I just think on the back of what Claudio Ranieri did last season, he deserved the opportunity to try and keep Leicester up.

"This is bigger than Leicester, the way the game's going.

"It's a very sad state of affairs because what Leicester did last season could make everyone dream. The dreams of myself and Gary [Neville] as a kid, winning the FA Cup, the European Cup; think of these great moments - that's a dream for any player.

"That's now not a dream for any club - all they're interested in is money.

"How they change I do not know but it is a terrible sad state of affairs we find ourselves in."

Carragher also touched upon Wigan Athletic's 2013 FA Cup victory, which was followed days later by relegation from the Premier League and how clubs want guaranteed Premier League football over memorable cup finals.

"They'd rather stay in the Premier League. That's why teams at the bottom of the league play weakened teams in the FA Cup."
