Leicester City fans react on Twitter to Claudio Ranieri's appointment

Leicester City have a new man in charge but what do the Foxes' fans think of the news?

After looking like relegation was the only outcome for much of last season, Leicester City ultimately soared to safety in fantastic style under the guidance of Nigel Pearson; however that was not enough to keep the manager in the job, and on Monday it was announced that the Foxes had replaced him with Italian Claudio Ranieri.

It may have taken Leicester two weeks to find Pearson’s successor, after his sacking on 30 June, but when it came it generated plenty of headlines.

Ranieri knows the Premier League well from his time in charge of Chelsea but the Tinkerman, as he is affectionately known for his constant changes in team selection, rarely stays anywhere for long.

The new Leicester boss has taken charge of 14 different clubs (the vast majority of which have been in Italy) during a career that has spanned three decades. He was also the coach of Greece’s national team prior to his return to England.
