Leicester City have announced the departure of manager Claudio Ranieri less than a year after he led the Foxes to a miraculous Premier League title triumph.

The Italian's sacking comes just a fortnight after the club's Board had issued their "unwavering" support for him and less than 24 hours after Leicester grabbed a lifeline in their Champions League tie with Sevilla.

Jamie Vardy's away goal means that Leicester will take an away goal back to the King Power stadium where a 1-0 win would be enough to cancel out the Spanish side's 2-1 lead from the first leg.
