Claudio Ranieri sacked by Leicester City

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

And with their Premier League status at stake, champions Leicester City have taken the nuclear option.
Claudio Ranieri – only nine months on from leading the greatest underdog story ever told - has been sacked.

While many will decry the decision, they are not the ones who have to live with the consequence of inaction.

It is pellucid that Ranieri has lost the facility to lead the squad that won the league by 10 points last season. The recent defeat to Swansea was a case in point.

At that stage of the season – with that much at stake – Leicester were unable to pull one performance out of the fire when at this stage last season they had pulled about 15. Something had to be done.

Short of dismissing the entire overpaid yet under-performing first-team squad, this was the only option available.
