Leicester City have issued a statement backing manager Claudio Ranieri with unwavering support.

After winning the league title last season in quite incredible fashion, the club are back near the bottom of the table. Even though Lester did expect a tough campaign after having won the title, Ranieri would not have imagined a relegation battle. At the start of the campaign, the Italian focused heavily on the Champions League and this led to a dip in the league form – even though the club did qualify for the knockout stages of the European competition.

Ranieri has been unable to revive the confidence within the players. The fourth consecutive defeat during the weekend came against Manchester United in a 3-0 loss. The result leaves the club just one point above the relegation zone. Questions have arisen about the future of Ranieri owing to this poor form. As someone who has brought unprecedented success to the club, Ranieri was always going to be given a lot of time in the event of a mishap.

It appears to be the case as the club have come out with a statement following rumours about Ranieri’s sacking. It remains to be seen if the public vote of confidence from the board will pull the squad together and help them get a victory.

"In light of recent speculation, Leicester City Football Club would like to make absolutely clear its unwavering support for its first-team manager Claudio Ranieri. While there is a collective appreciation from everyone at the club that recent form needs to improve, the unprecedented success achieved in recent seasons has been based firmly on stability, togetherness and determination to overcome even the greatest of challenges,” said a statement from Leicester City. Leicester City appear to have struggled to cope with playing two games a week due to a Champions League commitments.
