Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has lent his support to Claudio Ranieri, after the Italian was sacked by Leicester City on Thursday night.
Ranieri was fired following a run of poor results, that leaves the Premier League champions hovering over the relegation zone.
Nine months ago however, the former Greece manager and his team defied 5000/1 odds to win the title.
Mourinho, who himself was sacked by Chelsea last season, months after also winning the Premier League title, has sent a message of support to the 65-year-old.
He uploaded a picture of the pair to Instagram, along with the caption: “CHAMPION OF ENGLAND and FIFA MANAGER of THE YEAR️. Sacked.
“That’s the new football, Claudio. Keep smiling AMICO. Nobody can delete the history you wrote.”
