Claudio Ranieri receives social media love from 2 Chelsea players following Leicester Sacking

Ranieri Sacked

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 today.

And the tributes haven’t been limited to managers – they’re pouring in from players too.

John Terry and David Luiz Pay Tribute

Perhaps unsurprisingly given his Chelsea history, Ranieri has been receiving plenty of support from Stamford Bridge.

First John Terry, and now David Luiz has taken to Instagram to offer support to the fallen Italian.

Unlike Terry, Luiz never actually played for Ranieri, which arguably makes his tribute even more impressive.
