Sousa sacked

Leicester manager Paulo Sousa has been sacked as manager of the club with immediate effect.

A statement on the club's official site read:

"The decision has been taken as a result of the club's poor run of results this season.

"The club would like to state that Paulo Sousa is a first-class individual, but that this decision has been taken in the best interests of the club and our ambitions to move up the npower Championship."

Chris Powell and goalkeeping coach Mike Stowell will take temporary charge of the side for the visit of Scunthorpe United on Saturday.

The news may come as little shock to many Leicester fans following the team's dismal start to the Championship campaign.

The Foxes have won just one of their opening nine league fixtures and sit rooted to the bottom of the table following Tuesday's 4-3 defeat at Norwich.

Sousa's defeat sees Leicester searching for their 11th permanent manager this decade, the sixth under the Milan Mandaric regime.
