Leicester City Relegated From The English Premier League
Leicester City’s nine-year stay in the Premier League came to an end as they were relegated in agonising fashion despite beating West Ham on the final day of the season.
The Foxes’ fate was out of their hands heading into the last round of fixtures, and Everton’s 1-0 victory over Bournemouth meant the 2015-16 winners slipped into the Championship by two points.
While Toffees fans were in ecstasy at Goodison Park, Leicester supporters at the King Power were left to rue a miserable campaign in which they won only nine league matches.
Interim boss Dean Smith said it was a “massive disappointment”.
“I can only look at my seven weeks and eight games,” he said. “I always felt coming in it was going to be tough. The confidence and belief was low. “I felt we would need 11 points to stay up, it turned out to be 11 but we only got nine. In that regard, I have failed.”
