Craig Shakespeare has been sacked by Leicester City after a dismal start to the season at the King Power.

The 2015/16 English Premier League champions are in the bottom three after just one win from their opening eight Premier League games.

The Foxes decided to part ways with Shakespeare less than 24 hours after a 1-1 draw with West Brom.

Shakespeare had assisted Claudio Ranieri during the Premier League title triumph in 2015-16 and then succeeded him, at first on a caretaker basis. In June, he signed a three-year contract to take the job permanently.

He leaves the King Power after 26 games at the helm.

Leicester have won 11 games since the 53-year-old took over in February, drawing six and losing nine.

The Foxes spent around £60m on new players in the summer; £25m on Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho and £15m on Sevilla’s skipper Vincent Iborra.
