Former Premier League champions, Leicester City have parted ways with Craig Shakespeare only four months after he was officially appointed as the team manager.
Shakespeare, who has been part of the City coaching staff before taking over the team in February after the departure of Claudio Ranieri, signed a three-year deal by the beginning of this season.
After taking charge from Ranieri, the 53-year old won eight of his 16 games in charge last season, and led the club to the Champions League quarter-finals.
But the Foxes are currently third from bottom in the Premier League and have not won any of their past six league matches.
And the manager’s departure follows a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday night, which meant of their 10 matches this season – eight in the league and two in the EFL Cup – they have won three and drawn three, losing four.
This means Super Eagles stars, Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, who all play for the club, will be expecting a new manager as they prepare for week 9 of the Premier League.
