Claudio Ranieri Sacked – My Say

By James Russell In Leicester City, News & Current Affairs No comments

Well, as a Leicestershire based company we have strong ties to local sports teams. One of our Directors had some very eloquent comments to make on the removal of the coach at Leicester Tigers recently. Now we find Leicester City in a similar predicament! As a season ticket holder, personally I am disappointed at the decision to sack Claudio.

Leicester City won the Premiership last year. I’ll say that again. Leicester City won the Premiership last year! That is a sentence I never believed I would utter. It is frankly miraculous and beyond anything I could ever have wished for. Less than 300 days after achieving the impossible, Claudio is shown the door.

Claudio made me believe that spirit, endeavour and togetherness could enable us to achieve our seemingly impossible dreams. In an age where money seems to rule the world, Claudio proved otherwise. How wonderful to experience that.

Now he has been sacked. Claudio has left the club. I think the decision is wrong.

Leicester City are in the Premiership, they are in the last 16 of the Champions League (at the moment) and they are reigning Champions. Bearing in mind it’s not that long ago I was watching them in League 1, that’s not bad is it?

Claudio should have stayed and been allowed to put things right.
