Leicester sack manager Shakespeare - reports

Text size Aa Aa

LONDON (Reuters) – Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare was sacked on Tuesday four months after he was put in permanent charge of the Premier League club, British media reported. Shakespeare assumed a caretaker role in February after Claudio Ranieri, who led Leicester to a stunning Premier League title triumph in 2015-16, was dismissed with the club mired in relegation trouble. The 53-year-old led Leicester away from trouble and steered them into the Champions League quarter-finals where they lost narrowly to Atletico Madrid. Leicester have won only one of their eight Premier League games this season and are third-bottom of the table. Shakespeare’s last game in charge was Monday’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.
