Leicester City have fired manager, Craig Shakespeare following the club’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday. The 53 year-old who was appointed in June contract succeeded Claudio Ranieri on a caretaker basis. The decision comes after the foxes slipped into the bottom three and 18th on the PL log.
Leicester’s performances have been below par this season. The club recorded six winless matches and 1 victory in 10 Premier League games, against newly promoted Brighton in August. Shakespeare who signed a 3 year-deal with the club was given money to spend during the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Harry Maguire for £17million and Kelechi Iheanacho for £25m.
He gained 15 points from his first 5 PL games with the club. His assistant, Michael Appleton will replace him temporarily.
