Leicester have announced in a statement their ‘unwavering support’ for manager Claudio Ranieri.
A miserable run of results has left the defending Premier League champions facing a relegation battle, with Ranieri’s future coming under increasing scrutiny.
However, the club issued a statement yesterday afternoon providing a vote of confidence for the 65-year-old who it seems will get the opportunity to salvage Leicester’s season.
The statement read: ‘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.
‘The entire club is, and will remain, united behind its manager and behind its players, collectively and firmly focused on the challenges ahead.’
