Leicester City have sacked manager Craig Shakespeare just four months after he took up the role on a permanent basis.

Lying in the relegation zone, the club have not won in six league games.

The dismissed 53-year-old signed a three-year contract in June, thirteen months after they won the league with his former boss, Claudio Ranieri, in charge.

But as he too now exits, this is a selection of the best Craig Shakespeare sacked jokes:

I was gutted when Shakespeare got axed. I said to him, "Now is the winter of Leicester's discontent."
"It's autumn," he replied.

Expect Craig Shakespeare's statement to say "Will I bounce back? My Grandad fought in WW2, came home and mowed the lawn, I'll cope."

That bloke at Nantes looks to be doing a decent job. Maybe they can pry him away.

Leicester sacking Shakespeare disgusts me, proves how the world today doesn’t appreciate fine literature. Classless.
