Leicester City has officially sacked Claudio Ranieri less than a year after winning the Premier League.
The manager was let go following a 2-1 Champions League loss to Sevilla.

The Foxes have found themselves in a dire situation this season, currently sitting just one point above the relegation zone. A poor run of form has seen them drop to 17th in the table, flame out of the FA Cup against a League One side, and fall behind in their Champions League tie against Sevilla.
A recent vote of confidence by the club was not enough to save Renieri’s job in the long-term, as he has been fired just two weeks after it was issued.
Claudio Ranieri led the club to the finest moment in its history and will always be remembered for this incredible achievement.
We here at Fosse Posse would like to thank him for all he has given to our beloved club and wish him well in his future endeavors.
