Claudio Ranieri Relieved Of Managerial Duty At Leicester

Leicester Last season surpassed all odds to be Premier League Champions under the Claudio Ranieri and for this achievement at the Club, he not only got nominated for the FIFA Best Coach Of The Year but went ahead to win it ahead of Zinedine Zidane of Real Madrid and the Portugal UEFA Euro Coach.
Since the start of this season, Leicester had failed to replicate those attributes of last season that gave them that guts to go against the best and winning the premier League ahead of Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and The premier League greatest, to make things worst they have not scored a premier League goal since the start of the year which also contributes to their position, just a point above the Relegation.
To make things better, the Leicester Management had concluded parting was with the Italian would result the team, Leicester had gone from Premier League team to a struggling team losing to Millwall in their last FA Cup tie and losing to Sevilla in the Champions League though excelling in European competition had been their major trade mark this season but falling off in to second division in the domestic League will not help the club in any way.
A Leicester statement read: "Leicester City Football Club has tonight [Thursday] parted company with its first team manager, Claudio Ranieri.

"Claudio, appointed City manager in July 2015, led the Foxes to the greatest triumph in the club's 133-year history last season, as we were crowned champions of England for the first time. His status as the most successful Leicester City manager of all time is without question.
"However, domestic results in the current campaign have placed the club's Premier League status under threat, and the board reluctantly feels that a change of leadership, while admittedly painful, is necessary in the club's greatest interest."
vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha
Srivaddhanaprabha said: "This has been the most difficult decision we have had to make in nearly seven years since King Power took ownership of Leicester City. 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.
"Claudio has brought outstanding qualities to his office. His skilful management, powers of motivation and measured approach have been reflective of the rich experience we always knew he would bring to Leicester City. His warmth, charm and charisma have helped transform perceptions of the club and develop its profile on a global scale. We will forever be grateful to him for what he has helped us to achieve.
"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."
