Leicester City have relieved first team manager, Craig Shakespeare of his duties after just 4 months in charge of the team. The foxes haven’t been in good form since the commencement of the season; recording only one win against Brighton, three draws and four losses in eight premier league matches so far. This leaves them eighteenth on the log with six points from eight games.
Whether he saw the sack coming is a topic for another day, but according to the Daily mail, here is what he said just before yesterday’s 1-1 draw at home to West Brom. “’It’s the reality, we all understand that you can draw four games on the trot and the spin becomes that you haven’t won for four games. With the amount of coverage on TV and radio, social media and online comment, it’s normal now to be questioned after four games.
‘The key thing is don’t try and get too agitated and upset if people don’t like the way you’re doing things – of course it’s lovely to be well liked but for every pat on the back there’s a kick up the bum coming in a week’s time,” he said.
he added that “as long as you’re quite level with your highs and lows, you’ve got to maintain that because ultimately it’s the players and the owners who will have a bearing on how you succeed.”
The 53 year-old who took over from title winning manager, Claudio Ranieri becomes the second managerial casualty in the English Premier League this season after Frank De Boer was relieved of his duties as Crystal Palace manager last month.
