Sack the manager who won you the most watched football league in the world? What nonsense! Okay Leicester City are having a bad run this season. But the Thai owners completely forget about the work which Ranieri did last year.
The 65-year-old Italian masterminded the Foxes to their first ever Premier League title last season in what was arguably the greatest achievement in the history of the English top flight.
The news comes just one day after Leicester were beaten 2-1 by Sevilla in the last-16 of the Champions League at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium in Seville, Spain.
It’s been confirmed that assistant manager Craig Shakespeare and first-team coach Mike Stowell will take over the reins until a new manager is brought in.
Here is what the official statement from the club looked like:
Ranieri, who landed the role back in July 2015, has been sacked just nine months after lifting the Premier League trophy with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez at the King Power Stadium.
So is this a good decision taken by the Leicester owners? Definitely not. Ranieri managed a team which people thought will be relegated, to the top of the premier league. Every thing takes time. Take the example of Arsenal who has the same manager since forever.
