The sacking of Claudio Ranieri as Leicester City manager just nine months after guiding the unfashionable club to a sensational Premier League title stunned the football world Friday and brought widespread condemnation on the owners.Players, managers and commentators expressed dismay at the move and nearly all backed Ranieri, who only last month was named FIFA's coach of the year for scripting one of the most unbelievable stories in football.British media aimed withering criticism at Leicester's Thai owners, King Power, who said they had no choice but to oust Ranieri.Leicester insisted they had to act to save the club from the threat of an unprecedented relegation one year after winning the title.Vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said ditching Ranieri had been the hardest decision the owners had made.The Times said some players want Nigel Pearson, who was sacked by Leicester's owners in 2015 to make way for Ranieri, to return.
