Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare was sacked after just four months in charge of the club, becoming the latest manager to be on the receiving end of a tendency to sack managers at the first sign of trouble.

He joined Frank de Boer on the Premier League's managerial sacked list for the 2017/18 season, and he was let go by Leicester with his side languishing in 18th position.

De Boer lasted just 77 days after his Crystal Palace side lost all four of their games with the Dutchman at the helm, and what's more they failed to score a single goal.

Shakespeare's record this season was slightly better, but the side had still only won one match under his guidance this season — a 2-0 win against newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

Though their losses had all come against sides in the so-called big six, which should be understandable, draws against West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth were unacceptable for those upstairs at Leicester, and they will now look for the Englishman's replacement.

They aren't the only managers to lose their jobs before they've even had chance to start them, and they won't be the last. There are a whole host of managers who've lasted little longer than a few months, and De Boer and Shakespeare are in good company — or bad company depending on which way you look at it!
