Craig Shakespeare sacked, in the best interest of the club ?

DATE: 17.10.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

After last nights performance I thought, give this set up a chance and give them time to run things into a team and formula that works well for the club

This was the first league game with Iborra, Iheanacho and Maguire all starting, and the way City played made me feel comfortable about this and that it would turn fortunes and get things rolling.

But as with Ranieri, when we all thought things were turning to the better, the axe was there and now out with Shakespeare only four months into his new life as manager. What a brutal decission to make.

The total group of people, running first team affairs at City in the last 10 years or so, are shipped out. This will of course be a blow for the continuitiy of things, but as always in the best interest of the club ?

TCF never or will ever say that sacking Claudio Ranieri was the best decission. To sack Shakespeare is with a mixed feeling, since the guy is a football coach, growing into something, and if that is right to do at Premier League level, to grow into something, not certain.

But Shakespeare is a first class coach, but not a real manager type. He could have grown into one, and might get that chance elsewhere.

He did a grand job taking over after Ranieri, but his start to the season was a difficult one. Shakespeare never managed to bring any bonus points from the games against the "giants" in the first games, despite delivering good performances and players doing well.

The situation with Mahrez and Drinkwater over the summer, and the way rumours and strange acts by the players, sending in transfer requests and making it 100 % clear that staying at Leicester was no option if a bid of acceptance came in.

Sad to see Shakespeare go, rates him highly as a football man and coach, one of the best in the trade. Sadly his days as manager at Leicester City is numbered, and the idea of being one, might be to much to handle for "Shaky".

To see the candidates again listed, the bets coming up and starting again to think about who is the best for the job is a bit boring. Roy Hodgson came in at Palace, and two names coming up is Sam Allardyce and Alan Pardew.

Both are good managers. They are both people with a long life in management and knows how to work in a club like Leicester City, with both previous been at Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace.

As said before sad to Shakespeare leave, thought he would get more time, the rollercoaster is again running at City, and as long as we are not getting 70 year old Redknapps and Hodgsons, we just have to wait and see what will be the outcome.

Another name that has been mentioned is Carlo Ancelotti, but as with Roberto Mancini, it would be strange to see him take over Leicester City. But if he does, would be of course one welcomed.

Gary Lineker suggests Claudio Ranieri, but if that happens if would be a 5000/1.

The club has also officially made a statement, link
