Craig Shakespeare has been sacked as manager of Leicester City just four months being given the job on a permanent basis.
Shakespeare succeeded Claudio Ranieri as caretaker manager last season and led the club out of the relegation zone and to a 12th-place finish. But less than 24 hours after a 1-1 draw with West Brom, the club decided to part with the 53-year-old. Monday's 1-1 draw with the Baggies dropped the Foxes into the bottom three and marked a run of sixth matches without a win - the same as when Ranieri was relived of his duties nine months ago. Shakespeare, who signed a three-year deal in June, leaves with Leicester having won just once in eight league matches this season. Michael Appleton, who had been working as Shakespeare's assistant, will take caretaker charge for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Swansea City. Among the potential replacement candidates being tipped are Sam Allardyce, Wales manager Chris Coleman, David Moyes and Roberto Mancini. Oct 17 - 3:06 PM
