Claudio Ranieri who bagged the Best FIFA Men’s Coach 2016 has been relieved of his job by English Premier League club Leicester City.

Ranieri until his sack led the Foxes for over one and a half year, within which he guided the team to an unforgettable first ever Premier League Trophy last season and to  the last round of 16 in the 2016/2017 UEFA Champions League where they trail Sevilla by 2-1 in the first leg played in Spain last night.

Leicester City irrespective of the above achievements are lying 17th place on the current English league table just a point above relegation zone with 13 games left to play before the end of season. A situation which reportedly prompted the club into taking this shocking decision.

“This has been the most difficult decision we have had to make in nearly seven years since King Power took ownership of Leicester City,” noted vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha in a statement released on the club’s official website. “But we are duty-bound to put the club’s long-term interests above all sense of personal sentiment, no matter how strong that might be.

 “It was never our expectation that the extraordinary feats of last season should be replicated this season. Indeed, survival in the Premier League was our first and only target at the start of the campaign. But we are now faced with a fight to reach that objective and feel a change is necessary to maximise the opportunity presented by the final 13 games.
“We will forever be grateful to him for what he has helped us to achieve.”
