BREAKING: Brendan Rodgers sack as Leicester manager after four years in charge

Following their fifth loss in six Premier League games, Brendan Rodgers has been sacked as manager of Leicester City.

The Foxes' 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday saw them fall into the relegation spots. After being hired in February 2019, Rodgers guided the team to its first FA Cup victory in 2021.

Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, however, claimed in a statement that this season's performances and results have fallen "below our shared expectations."

"It had been our belief that continuity and stability would be key to correcting our course, particularly given our previous achievements under Brendan's management," he added.

"Regrettably, the desired improvement has not been forthcoming and, with 10 games of the season remaining, the board is compelled to take alternative action to protect our Premier League status.

"The task ahead of us in our final 10 games is clear. We now need to come together - fans, players and staff - and show the poise, quality and fight to secure our position as a Premier League club."

The foxes are currently slumping to the bottom of the table after beginning the 2022-2023 campaign with seven defeats from their opening 10 premier League games.

They have struggled since the season resumed, however, collecting just seven points from 33 available.

Leicester also are exited from the EFL Cup against Newcastle and the FA Cup against Blackburn during that run.
