Claudio Ranieri has been sacked as Leicestery City’s manager. Yes, you heard that right. The footballing world was left in shock on Thursday night after Leicester City football club made a public announcement stating that they had parted ways with the Italian boss. Just nine months after steering Leicester City to the Premier League Title, (in what will be regarded as the greatest underdog story in sporting history) and being crowned the FIFA World Coach of the year, Ranieri has been shown the door, effectively ending his stint with the foxes. A host of the most prominent names in football took to social media to show their disapproval for the sacking, and rightly so. Nevertheless, he has left a lasting legacy with the club, propelling his team to Premier League glory last season. Lets’s take a look at some of Ranieri’s best moments during his short but immortal stint with Leicester City.
When Claudio Ranieri was initially appointed the coach of Leicester city, he had a lot of doubters to prove wrong. Many pundits questioned the appointment of the Italian and the majority of them tipped the Foxes to get relegated, come the end of the season. Well how wrong did they turn out to be! Leicester city had a glorious start to the season with an opening day demolition of Sunderland. They went on a wonderful unbeaten streak before finally losing to Arsenal in September. However, the Foxes were in a really good position right from the start of the season and would go on to show incredible consistency throughout the campaign.
