Ekun Samuel, 07 February 2017
Despite the lack lustre display and disappointing results from last seasons Premier League Champions Leicester City, the club management and board have given their support for the Manager Claudio Ranieri. They are the first Premier League team to fail to score in the first five matches of a calendar year and the only side in the top four English tiers to have failed to score in the league in 2017. Many have speculated the sacking of the Italian who won last year's European coach of the Year. They are currently sixteenth in the League standing, one point above the relegation zone. Their recent disappointment result came from Sunday's 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester United. The management and the board have openly come out to voice their support for Claudio Ranieri as regards to speculation leading to his sacking.  The statement reads: "In light of recent speculation, Leicester City Football Club would like to make absolutely clear its unwavering support for its first team manager, Claudio Ranieri. "While there is a collective appreciation from everyone at the club that recent form needs to improve, the unprecedented success achieved in recent seasons has been based firmly on stability, togetherness and determination to overcome even the greatest of challenges. "The entire club is and will remain united behind its manager and behind its players, collectively and firmly focused on the challenges ahead."
