Earlier this week, Leicester City confirmed the dismissal of Craig Shakespeare as manager.
The Foxes are currently in the bottom three following a 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion.
Leicester City’s owners were acted in a similar fashion to the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, as they let him go as soon as results went against him.
The former Leicester City boss Shakespeare has subsequently released a statement after Tuesday’s proceedings.

Craig Shakespeare spent less than eight months in the job at the King Power.
He guided the Foxes to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and steered them away from relegation last season.
During his time in charge, only last season’s top six has taken more league points than Leicester.
However, following a very poor start to the new season, Leicester City’s owners pulled the trigger.

Shakespeare’s assistant Michael Appleton is set to take charge of Leicester as caretaker manager.
He is tasked with lifting the players following the disappointing events which unfolded on Tuesday.
