Brendan Rogers has been sacked as manager of Leicester City following a fifth defeat in six Premier League matches.
The sacking is on the heels of a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday.
In a statement in Sunday, chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said performances and results this season have been “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.”
