The choice by the Foxes board is pushed by the crew languishing only one level above the relegation zone, however even non-Leicester followers seem to have fallen out of affection with the sport because of this.
The 65-year-old Italian took a crew that narrowly prevented relegation to an unlikely title win – a feat universally hailed as a fairytale. And whereas Metropolis stay within the final 16 of the Champions League, it wasn’t sufficient.
The membership stated in an announcement:
“Claudio, appointed Metropolis supervisor in July 2015, led the Foxes to the best triumph within the membership’s 133-year historical past final season, as we had been topped champions of England for the primary time. His standing as probably the most profitable Leicester Metropolis supervisor of all time is with out query.
“Nevertheless, home leads to the present marketing campaign have positioned the Membership’s Premier League standing underneath risk and the Board reluctantly feels change of management, whereas admittedly painful, is important within the membership’s best curiosity.”
