Sven-Goran Eriksson sacked by Leicester City following poor start to the season

Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has been sacked by Leicester City following their poor start to the season.

The Foxes, who were widely tipped as pre-season promotion favourites, spent in excess of £10m this summer but have so far failed to see a return on their investment as they sit in 13th place.

A 3-0 home defeat to Millwall was the nail in the coffin for Eriksson who has been relieved of his duties by the club’s ambitious Thai owners.

However the decision seems quite a knee-jerk reaction considering a win in that game would have potentially seen Leicester propelled into fourth place and as it stands they only sit two points outside of the play-off places.

Eriksson enjoyed a 43.64% win rate in his time at the King Power Stadium but must now look for new employment after becoming the third Championship managerial casualty this season.
