Former Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has revealed he will be revealing all circumstances surrounding his ‘shock’ sacking from the King Power Stadium during a televised Premier League show on April 10 when he appears as a pundit on the clash between Crystal Palace and Arsenal.

“Until that day I will not talk,” Ranieri said in front of the inmates at the Rebibbia prison in Italy on Wednesday as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Because everything took place in England and it seems fitting to talk in England.”

Italian coach Claudio Ranieri was sacked nine months after guiding Leicester to their first league title ever in over a century and he has admitted news of his dismissal came unexpected.

The former Chelsea boss has kept a low profile since but appeared on stage this week at Rebibbia prison in Italy in a ceremony to honour regional football coaches in the country.

“Thinking of Leicester, the first thing that comes to mind is the sense of surprise, even more than bitterness,” the 65-year-old added.

“I have been through a lot in my long career, but never anything like this.

“It was a shock, but in the end these things are part of football.”

Ranieri was relieved of his duties after Leicester’s first-leg defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League last 16, a tie they eventually went on to win and they now face Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals.
