Leicester City Sacks Craig Shakespeare As Coach
Leicester City have sacked manager Craig Shakespeare just four months after he signed a three-year deal to take the job on a permanent basis after Ranieri departed from the club.
The Foxes are third from bottom in the Premier League and have not won any of their past six league matches. Shakespeare, 53, succeeded title winner Claudio Ranieri in February, initially on a temporary basis.
After steering the Foxes away from trouble to finish in 12th place, he was given the job permanently in June. Shakespeare won eight of his 16 games in charge last season, and led the club to the Champions League quarter-finals.
Rumors has it that the 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday prompted his departure. The last time Leicester went six league matches without a victory, Ranieri was sacked – nine months after leading them to the title.
Former Leicester player Gary Lineker highlights his dissatisfaction with some of the decisions made by the Leicester owners.
