Leicester City to back Claudio Ranieri

Claudio Ranieri news

Ranieri won't back sacked despite poor run

Leicester City owners will not be sacking Claudio Ranieri in the near future despite a dismal run of results which has seen them near the drop zone.

The English champions are facing the prospect of being relegated just a season after their maiden and historical Premier League triumph against the odds.

The Foxes are currently the only side in Europe's top five leagues to have not scored in the turn of the year, and this leaves them in a position where relegation looks a distinct possibility.

According to The Telegraph, Ranieri has the full backing of the Foxes chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha despite the recent 3-0 mauling at the hands of Manchester United.

It is added that the club's hierarchy are hopeful of salvaging their season with their FA Cup replay against Derby County and a testing Champions League tie versus Sevilla over the next fortnight.

Leicester City currently have their work cut out in the top flight with all of their relegation rivals having achieved positive results in recent games.
