on

Claudio Ranieri has been sacked as Leicester City manager just nine months after leading the Foxes to their first Premier League title.

Ranieri departures come after the team 2-1 Champions League defeat to Spanish side Sevilla and the team recent poor run of form having just one point above the relegation zone.

The Foxes haven’t won a Premier League game in 2017, which has seen relegation fears grow, with 13 games left to secure top flight safety and ensure last season’s miracle title win comes doesn’t turn sour

Claudio Ranieri

A statement on the club’s official website reads in part: “Leicester City Football Club has tonight (Thursday) parted company with its First Team Manager, Claudio Ranieri.

“Claudio, appointed City manager in July 2015, led the Foxes to the greatest triumph in the Club’s 133-year history last season, as we were crowned champions of England for the first time. His status as the most successful Leicester City manager of all time is without question.

“However, domestic results in the current campaign have placed the Club’s Premier League status under threat and the Board reluctantly feels that a change of leadership, while admittedly painful, is necessary for the Club’s greatest interest.”

The statement also confirms assistant manager, Craig Shakespeare will take charge until a new manager is appointed, starting with preparation for Monday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.

“First Team preparations for Monday’s Premier League fixture against Liverpool will resume on Saturday, with Assistant Manager Craig Shakespeare and First Team Coach Mike Stowell taking charge of the squad until a new manager is appointed.”

 

Meanwhile, football fans all over the world took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction
