With Claudio Ranieri as manager, Leicester City rather sensational won the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season. On Thursday it was announced that the club has sacked the Italian.
Leicester is currently in 17th place in the Premier League, one place above the relegation zone, and has not been near living up to what the club did last season.
On Wednesday the reigning English champions secured a good result away from home in the Champions League match against Sevilla. Now many are outraged over the sacking of Ranieri.
One of those who have taken to social media is the English soccer legend, Gary Lineker.
"After all that Claudio Ranieri has done for Leicester City, to sack him now is inexplicable, unforgivable and gut-wrenchingly sad," Lineker writes on Twitter.
Another who took to social media was SkySport's expert and former Manchester United star, Gary Neville:
"Winning the Premier League the " New Poisoned Chalice "
Conte sacked next season!!"
Also Neville's colleague in SkySports, Jamie Carragher, found the decision remarkable.
"Absolute Joke," was his short comment.
Former Manchester United and Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin, who also comes from Leicester, tweeted:
"REALLY!!! Are you sure @LCFC .... sacking the manager that won you the @premierleague title!! That's just shocking #Ranieri"
