The 2015/2016's EPL champion's Manager Sacked!!!

Craig Shakespeare the Leicester city manager have been relieved of his duties just six months after taking over from Claudio Ranieri,the man who led them to their first ever premier league title.

The decision by the board of directors was taken at a meeting held in the early hours of Tuesday, following their 1-1 draw with West Brow in the last game of week 7, taking their non winning streak to six games [6 games without a win].which has landed them on the 18th spot just two spots above the bottom{in the relegation zone}.

West Brow have proven to be a triggering pill to sack.

The West Brom curse?

Shakespeare is the seventh manager in the past five years to leave his job in the aftermath of a match with West Bromwich Albion:

¶Mick McCarthy was sacked as Wolves manager in 2012 after losing 5-1 at home to the Baggies.

¶Andre Villas-Boas suffered the same fate at Chelsea after a 1-0 defeat at The Hawthorns in March 2012 and, eight months later,

¶ his successor Roberto di Matteo departed after a 2-1 defeat at the same ground in his final league match (his final game in charge was against Juventus in the Champions League).

¶Roberto Mancini was sacked by Manchester City despite having just beaten West Brom 1-0 in May 2013.

¶Paolo di Canio lost his job at Sunderland after losing 3-0 to the Baggies in September 2013.

¶Chris Hughton was sacked by Norwich after losing 1-0 to WBA in April 2014.

¶And Sir Alex Ferguson's final match in charge of Manchester United before retiring was also against the Baggies - a 5-5 draw in May 2013.
