Shocking!!! Leicester City Sacks Claudio Ranieri

Nine months after winning Premier League trophy Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Leicester City. The Foxes are just a single point outside of the Premier League relegation places, having won the title last season. Leicester have nobody lined up to replace Ranieri, and will begin searching for a replacement on Friday.
The Thai owners have taken this decision with a heavy heart, but felt the possibility of them being relegated was unacceptable. The board expected a bounce in form after giving the Italian a public vote of confidence a fortnight ago offering their unwavering support. But now the owners felt there hadn't been a noticeable improvement and were left with no option but to dismiss him.

Vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said in a statement: “This has been the most difficult decision we have had to make in nearly seven years since King Power took ownership of Leicester City but we are duty-bound to put the Club's long-term interests above all sense of personal sentiment, no matter how strong that might be. Claudio has brought outstanding qualities to his office. His skilful management, powers of motivation and measured approach have been reflective of the rich experience we always knew he would bring to Leicester City. His warmth, charm and charisma have helped transform perceptions of the club and develop its profile on a global scale. We will forever be grateful to him for what he has helped us to achieve. It was never our expectation that the extraordinary feats of last season should be replicated this season. Indeed, survival in the Premier League was our first and only target at the start of the campaign. But we are now faced with a fight to reach that objective and feel a change is necessary to maximise the opportunity presented by the final 13 games.”
