Claudio Ranieri, the 65 years old hero of Leicester City Football Club who has set an added a new dimension the club’s history last year, has been officially sacked by the Foxes. The veteran Italian manager who has become very well renowned in the football world after directing the Foxes towards an unbelievable English Premier League glory last season. The King Power Stadium based club has written the fairy tale under this hard working and talented manager who has also won the manager of the year award in the very last Ballon d’Or gala.
The last year’s EPL title holders were struggling at the premier league this season as they are currently sitting at the 18th position in the league table with just 21 points beside their names from their first 25 league games and are trying to stay in the top tier league of English football. Despite all the struggles in the league it was thought that the manager who had lead them to an unbelievable achievement would not be sacked such soon and the fans and the players were also behind their manager.
The Foxes were completely out of the form in the EPL this season but they were flying high in the UCL and made it to the round of 16. But the Leicester City owners somehow lost their patience just after the first league defeat against Sevilla, which was a tough schedule as it was also away from home and they took the decision even before getting knocked out from the Champions League as the second leg is still to be played in the mid of the March.
Spanish giants Sevilla the hosted the current English champions in the first leg of the UCL round of 16 match at the Stadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on the Wednesday night. Spaniard midfielder Pablo Sarabia opened the scoring for the hosts on the 25th minute of the match. It was the 9th goal of the campaign for the 24 years old. Argentine midfielder Joaquin Correa doubled the lead on the 62nd minute of the game. It was the 5th strike of the campaign for the 22 years old footballer. Jamie Vardy put one back to the opposition’s net 11 minutes later and the game finished with the 2-1 victory for the Liga BBVA side.
Twitter and social media didn’t react positively after the official statement was published and they started trolling the Leicester City football club. Even the former footballers were shocked and disappointed with this decision and activity of the Foxes owners.
