  1. ALTHOUGH WHAT THE REFEREE DID WAS ANNOYING, AS PROFESSIONALS, VARDY AND THE REST OF THE LEICESTER PLAYERS SHOULD KNOW BETTER NOT TO DISPLAY THAT TYPE OF 'AGBORO' BEHAVIOUR AFTER THE MATCH. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND I CONDEMN THAT BEHAVIOUR TOO. I WILL PRAISE THE COACH WHO WAS CALM THROUGHOUT THE WAHALA AND EVEN WHEN THE PLAYERS WERE GOING TO THE REFEREE TO EXPRESS THEIR ANGER AFTER THE MATCH, HE DID NOT FOLLOW THE CROWD. A COACH LIKE MOURINHO WOULD HAVE EXPRESSED HIS ANGER OPENLY. CLAUDIO RANIERE IS AN EXPERIENCE COACH. HE EVEN REFUSED TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE REFEREE DURING THE POST MATCH INTERVIEW. PROFESSIONAL TO THE CORE. I KNOW THEY WILL DISCUSS THE HAPPENINGS TODAY AT THEIR TRAINING GROUND AND APPROPRIATE WARNINGS AND PERHAPS INHOUSE PUNISHMENT GIVEN. I JUST HOPE THAT THE CLUB WILL ACCEPTS THE CHARGE AND WISH THAT THE ONE MATCH BAN IS NOT INCREASED. LEICESTER IS GOING TO BE A CHAMPION AND THEY SHOULD BEHAVE LIKE CHAMPION TO BE.
