Leicester City board justify sacking manager Craig Shakespeare

Leicester City has put out an official statement as regard to the sacking of their manager Craig Shakespeare. Shakespeare took over from Claudio Ranieri, who led the club to a fairytale title win in 2016, and steered Leicester to safety but they have struggled this season.
Leicester City Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha explained Shakespeare’s departure saying “Craig has been a great servant to Leicester City – during his spells as an Assistant Manager and since taking over as Manager in challenging circumstances in February. His dedication to the Club and to his work has been absolute and the contribution he made to the most successful period in Leicester City history is considerable. However, our early promise under Craig’s management has not been consistently evident in the months since and the Board feels that, regrettably, a change is necessary to keep the Club moving forward – consistent with the long-term expectations of our supporters, Board and owners. Craig is and will remain a very popular, respected figure at Leicester City and will be welcome back at King Power Stadium in future, both professionally and as a friend of the Club. Will now begin the process of identifying and appointing its next First Team Manager and will make no further comment on the process until the appropriate time.”
