Leicester offer support to manager Claudio Ranieri
Leicester fell to a fourth-straight Premier League defeat against Manchester United on Sunday, leading to speculation Ranieri's time at the Foxes could be up.
The 3-0 loss at the King Power Stadium saw 18th-placed Foxes move dangerously close to the relegation zone, with Hull now just one point behind.
But Leicester insist they have no plans to sack Ranieri, who guided the Foxes to the Premier League title last season.
