Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has likened Claudio Ranieri’s sacking to that of Brexit and Donald Trump as president of the United States.
The news broke on Thursday evening that the Italian had been sacked and it sent the football world crazy.
Only nine months ago, Ranieri won the Premier League with Leicester against all the odds.
Then, he took him to the Champions League in which the club still have a fighting chance of progressing in.
Liverpool face Leicester on Monday and Jurgen Klopp couldn’t believe that the Italian had been sacked.
Klopp on Ranieri: "Am I surprised that things like this can happen? No. A few strange decisions with Brexit, Trump and Ranieri." #LFC

Twitter couldn’t handle it
There was little doubt that Ranieri’s sacking was going to create a media storm, but we didn’t expect it like this.
The sacking came in between Leicester’s two Champions League legs with Sevilla and twitter could not believe it.
Criticism towards Leicester followed, many questioning the decision and some angered by it.
The Foxes will now begin their managerial search as they looked to stay in the Premier League this season.
