Ranieri Sacking Reaction - Shakespeare couldn't have written any better

Junior Cert english students who studied Julius Caesar may see parallels in the famous piece of literature written by the bard from Stratford upon Avon about the ancient roman emperor and the events around the King Power stadium in the last 24 hours involving the modern day soccer manager.

With Leicester City assistant manager Craig Shakespeare set to assume the reigns the back page headlines won't be too hard to write in the coming weeks. 

Ranieri guided the Foxes to the Premier League title despite them being rated 5,000-1 shots at the start of the last campaign.

The club's called the decision 'painful' but 'necessary' but the move's been described as "unforgivable", by former Foxes striker Gary Lineker.

It's a results driven business and given that they are hovering over the relegation zone the shadow of that possibility may have been hanging over the Italian in recent weeks despite the dreaded recent 'vote of confidence'. Survivors of Ireland's recession and ex managers who've been given their P45 in the season after a premier league title win can empathise given the fact that they all realise that there is hardly any loyalty in business nowadays. Given that Jose Mourihno is in the latter group that can probably explain his instagram tweet.

 

The manager can only hope his training ground advice can be implemented in real time once the game kicks off. Given that it seems the Italian was ousted by player power this tweet from former Gunners and England striker Ian Wright seems appropriate. Be careful what you wish for.
