Craig Shakespeare: Leicester sack manager
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.
