London: Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri admits he could be sacked despite last season's stunning title success. They have not scored in the league this year and have won just twice in their last 14 top-flight games to sit two points above the relegation zone.

Ranieri won FIFA Coach of the Year in 2016 having guided Leicester to an improbable title after they were 5,000-1 at the start of the season, but conceded his future could be in doubt. “Everything is possible,” he said, when asked if he was unsackable. “Last season was completely different. Every decision of the referee, every shot that hit the post was a goal, the first shot went in, penalties against us weren't penalties and penalties for us were penalties. Everything is wrong, but we have to fight for ourselves. “When everything is going well, there are so many people who say 'well done'. It's too easy,” he added.

Ranieri's side are winless in the league since December 31.
