Shock! Leicester City Sack Their Manager Despite Battling Draw

Immediate past English champions Leicester City have surprisingly sacked their manager Craig Shakespeare just four months after he became head coach on a permanent basis.

The 53-year old had initially succeeded tite-winning manager Claudio Ranieri in February and did well to steer the club away from trouble to 12th place at the end of the season. To this effect, he was rewarded with a three-year contract but has now unfortunately paid for his job after he led the Foxes to an underwhelming start this season.

Leicester City presently occupy the last relegation place in the Premier League and are winless in the last six league matches.

Shakespeare becomes the second managerial casualty in the league after Dutchman Frank De Boer was sacked by London club Crystal Palace in September.

His final game was the battling 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday. His side trailed to a sumptuous free kick from Belgian winger Nacer Chadli before Riyad Mahrez rescued a point for Leicester City.
