A 3-0 loss to Caen dropped Monaco to second in the Ligue 2 table and now manager Claudio Ranieri has declared that if his players don't win their next match, he will kill them. Because what's a better way to motivate people than by threatening to end their life for failing at a game?

From Reuters:

"I am angry. Physically we were second best and here is the result. I want to win. We have to win. Otherwise, I am going to kill them," the former AS Roma and Juventus coach, who joined last May, told a news conference on Wednesday.

"The teams we face are more compact than we are. They give 100 percent. Since we do not, it is difficult for us."

This is definitely something Arsene Wenger should try with Arsenal. Probably after smearing goat blood all over himself and swinging a battle axe.
