Club: Leicester sack manager Shakespeare

Club: Leicester sack manager Shakespeare

Shakespeare only replaced Ranieri in June, signing a three-year contract after guiding the club to Premier League safety during his spell as caretaker.

Ranieri was sacked in February after overseeing six Premier League games without a victory - the same run Shakespeare is currently on.

Initially, the Foxes' inability to win could be put down to a cruel fixture computer throwing them up against Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool inside their first six games.

The move has not been well received among senior players in the dressing room.

"Maybe it has gone to their head and they've got carried away". Shakespeare was an important part of that core group which master planned Leicester's meteoric rise.

Following Shakespeare's sacking, the Match of the Day presenter and former England striker, who is a lifelong Leicester fan, tweeted his support for Claudio.

In the summer, the club gave him the job on a permanent basis.

His assistant, the former Blackburn and Portsmouth manager Michael Appleton, has been placed in temporary charge.

The 53-year-old was given his marching orders after Riyad Mahrez snatched a point for the Foxes in a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday night. For all the oft-mooted concerns about foreign owners, they have an incredible record of success with the big decisions.

"I think it's a little bit harsh really, considering what he did at the end of last season".

The question now is where Leicester will turn next.

The Burnley boss is highly-regarded among his coaching peers thanks to the stellar work he has done at Turf Moor under extreme budgetary restrictions. He plays a practical style that gets results as opposed to the delusional philosophically driven nonsense we've been watching this season.

Guus Hiddink - The veteran Dutchman was coveted by the Foxes when Ranieri was sacked, but it never materialised.

The club themselves are yet to make a statement on the shock news coming out of the East Midlands.

It's hard to argue with any of that, particularly the last line.

"We've probably had more possession tonight than we've had in most of our previous games".
