Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho who was also dismissed a year after winning the title while at Chelsea, has words of encouragement for the sacked Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri.

Jose Mourinho has posted a classy tribute message to Claudio Ranieri after the Italian was sacked by Leicester City.

The Premier League champions made the announcement on Thursday evening, a day after the Foxes were beaten 2-1 by Sevilla in the Champions League.

After their quite extraordinary title win, Ranieri's side have struggled in the 2016-17 season and find themselves in 17th place in the table with just five league wins from 25 matches.

Leicester were also dumped out of the FA Cup by Millwall at the fifth-round stage, with the club's hierarchy feeling a decision had to be made to arrest their decline.

Ranieri's success last season, that saw him crowned FIFA's Best Coach of the Year, has not been forgotten about, however, with Manchester United boss Mourinho sending on a message of support.

"CHAMPION OF ENGLAND and FIFA MANAGER of THE YEAR.sacked. Thats the new football claudio.keep smiling AMICO.nobody can delete the history you wrote," Mourinho wrote.
