5 reasons why Leicester City sacked Claudio Ranieri

 

The dream has come to an end for Claudio Ranieri. Manager of one of the most talked about football team last year, the defending champions has been sacked. Here is the official statement from the club:

This has been the most difficult decision we have had to make in nearly seven years since King Power took ownership of Leicester City. But we are duty-bound to put the Club’s long-term interests above all sense of personal sentiment, no matter how strong that might be.
Claudio has brought outstanding qualities to his office. His skilful management, powers of motivation and measured approach have been reflective of the rich experience we always knew he would bring to Leicester City. His warmth, charm and charisma have helped transform perceptions of the Club and develop its profile on a global scale. We will forever be grateful to him for what he has helped us to achieve.

The Italian manager, who led his team to one of the most famous Premier League wins last year, failed to live up to the expectations this season. After a terrible transfer season, tactical miscalculations and poor man management, the 65 year old has been relieved of his duties. We break down the possible reasons behind the decision:

  1. Poor run of games in the Premier League:

    The Foxes, who are defending their Premier League title this season, are very close to a potential relegation right now. One point off the danger zone, the present run of games indicates that the team are close to a total breakdown. The team has dropped 56 points already, sitting at 21 points from 25 games. The way things are going, it was imperative that the administration made the tough call. Leicester need a manager who could make sure their boat sails safely through this season.

  2. Transfer policy:

    The first mistake that the manager made was not doing enough to hold back N’golo Kante. One of their best players last season, Ranieri should have done more to make him stay. The mistake never stopped there, he went ahead to sign two more forwards. The team at that point needed Kante type ball winning midfielders. Investing in both Musa and Slimani, especially when they had a star in Vardy was a blunder. Therefore, the Leicester resilience which was held together last season by Kante, was missing this season.

  3. Failure to build on momentum:

    One of the main reasons why Leicester won last season was due to their team effort. The entire team performed as a single cohesive unit, winning matches together. They did, at times rely on the individual brilliance of the likes of Vardy and Mahrez. Despite the match-winners, Leicester has always been one team. Ranieri failed to build on the momentum they had generated. That is one of the main reasons why the team is where it is right now.

    The momentum is lost.

  4. Poor man management:

    Despite excelling at it last year, Ranieri’s man management has been beyond poor this season. The coach has failed to motivate the likes of Vardy and Mahrez to perform at their maximum potential. The defence often looks out of place, not working in tandem with each other. The body language of the players looks negative, in the very early minutes of the game. If a manager is close to losing his dressing room, it was in the best interests of the Board to make the call.

  5. Tactical miscalculations:

    Leicester played like lions last season. Winning ball in the midfield and passing it on to the wings, while Vardy ran a rampage through the counters. One thing that Ranieri obsessed over this season was the opponent strategies. For example, the team decided to play a 3-4-3 in the Champions League and they only knew two hours before the match about the same. In their game against Chelsea, the entire team was dismantled by the organized and powerful Londoners. He opted for a 4-4-2 diamond against Southampton which they lost as well. This continuous shift of tactics and formations without a consistent starting XI has left the players and the fans irritated.
