Leicester City’s owners have declared their “unwavering support” for Claudio Ranieri with the club in very real danger of making two very different types of history in consecutive Premier League seasons.
With the glorious title win of 2015/16 now consigned to history, the Foxes are currently teetering just one point above the relegation zone going into the last 14 games of the 2016/17 season.

Despite their precarious position, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and the rest of the King Power lads have released a statement backing Ranieri in his fight to fend off an unprecedented U-turn in Leicester’s fortunes:
The entire club is and will remain united behind its manager and behind its players, collectively and firmly focused on the challenges ahead.
The statement comes amid a flurry of conjecture that Ranieri might be losing the dressing room, with actual genuine reports that a ban on chicken burgers might be to blame for the bottoming-out of his squad’s morale.
Football truly is a thing of fickle mischief.
