Ranieri Sacked as Leicester Manager
Winning the English Premier League title last season is not enough to keep Claudio Ranieri job at Leicester City for another full season as the Italian has been officially sacked by the club.
Just days after their 2-1 defeat against Sevilla in the Champions League knock out stage, the Italian tactician found out that he won’t be in charge of The Foxes anymore.
Confirming the news via their official site, Leicester explained that their poor result in the Premier League is basically the main reason behind that important decision.
Knowing that the team are currently in danger of facing relegation, which financially could cost them over 100 million pounds, the club’s management felt that changing manager is essential to turn things around.
Notably, without neglecting their positive work in the Champions League, Leicester notably expecting that their new boss can set more focus on getting their domestic football going well first before seeking that European hope.
This is definitely an interesting episode in the club’s history as just about nine months ago, they completed a marvelous fairy tale in winning the Premier League.
However, this time around, Leicester suddenly found themselves in trouble of getting relegated, despite putting on a pretty good performance in the Champions League.
Ranieri himself seemingly frustrated with the situation as in their recent FA Cup defeat from Millwall, the tactician was questioning his players’ effort.
