Leicester City has ‘mutually’ agreed to part ways with head coach Brendan Rogers after four years with the club.

This comes a day after Crystal Palace heroically thumped Leicester 2-1 to throw the Foxes into the relegation berth. They sit 19th having collected 25 points from 28-games played.

Leicester chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: ‘The achievements of the team under Brendan’s management speak for themselves – we’ve experienced some of our finest footballing moments under his guidance and will always be grateful to him and his staff for the heights they helped us to reach on the pitch.

‘Off the pitch, Brendan embraced the culture of the Club and helped cultivate an outstanding developmental environment, particularly during the transition to Seagrave, and provided strong leadership during the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. His place in Leicester City history is assured.”

Leicester City has not won seven matches consecutively and has left the 2016 Epl champions in a precarious situation.

‘However, performances and results during the current 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. 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.’ He added
