Leicester City’s Ghanaian striker Jeff Schlupp says players of the club rather than coach Nigel Pearson should be blamed for the club’s unimpressive recent form.
The Foxes have witnessed a massive nosedive since the turn of the year which has led to criticism directed at the manager.
Leicester have slipped from second to eighth after a nine-game win-less streak, leaving Pearson under pressure.
The Foxes visit sixth-placed Bolton on Tuesday night is a must-win to revive play-off hopes.
While fans have blamed the coach for the slump in form Schlupp says the players must be held responsibel for the slump in form.
“The mood in the dressing room isn’t nice but we are big men and we will pick ourselves up,” Schlupp said.
“The boss is great and all the staff are doing everything they can to lift us, but it is down to us to do the business on the pitch.
“It is down to our own mistakes, so once we cancel out those mistakes we will win games.”
