Leicester City populary known as the foxes are currently sitting on position 17 in the log table and are just one place above the relegation zone.
Aassistant Manager Craig Shakespeare and First Team Coach Mike Stowell will be taking charge of the squad until a new manager is appointed.
Claudio Ranieri was appointed by the club in July 2015 and he led the Foxes to the greatest triumph in the Club’s 133-year history last season as they were crowned Premier League champions for the first time.
However, seven months into the 2016/17 season, Leicester have 21 points from 25 games and are battling for top-flight survival ahead of the games which will be played this weekend.
The 65-year-old Italian masterminded the Foxes to their first ever Premier League title last season in what was arguably the greatest achievement in the history of the English top flight.
The coach’s last game with the foxes was a Champions league game on Wednesday night and were beaten 2-1 by Sevilla.
