Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 days, you’ll by now be aware that Claudio Ranieri was sacked by Leicester.
Despite leading the club to their first ever Premier League title last season, the clubs owners have taken the drastic decision to sack the Italian, due to the team’s alarming recent results.
Support for Ranieri has been almost unanimous within the football world, and he’s now received support from the political sphere.
Labour PM uses Corbyn speech to support Ranieri
Labour MP Tom Watson made a rallying call for the Labour Party to stick by leader Jeremy Corbyn earlier today, ‘even if recent results haven’t gone his way.’
Watson later revealed on Twitter that the speech was meant for Ranieri.
