Premier League managers are today reeling from the news that Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Leicester City.
Given how highly regarded he is among his colleagues, and his title-winning achievement at Leicester, the news has been met with absolute shock within the Premier League.
Indeed, Jose Mourinho was so taken aback by the news that he paid homage to the Italian at his press conference yesterday.
Thanks the fans one final time
Ranieri released a magnanimous statement following the shock sacking yesterday, and he’s now made his first public utterances after being tracked down by Sky Sports’ roving reporters.
Ranieri was keeping quiet on the details of his sacking, but was keen to thank the fans one final time for their support.
