Leicester City are to install a pool of sharks underneath the dugout of the King Power Stadium to make firing future managers easier.
The club’s board were frustrated at having to wait until the end of Monday’s draw with West Brom to dismiss Craig Shakespeare – and would have preferred a trap door to open up and drop him into a deadly pool in the 63rd minute when West Brom scored.
A club spokesperson said: “Our board are entitled to be impatient after almost two barren years without a league win – a situation a massive club like Leicester City struggles to tolerate.
“We would like to thank Craig for his failed efforts to win the Premier League and Champions League, and we will be continuing to hire manager after manager in the faint hope of repeating our totally unique miracle of 2015/16.
“All these golden handshakes are bloody expensive though, which is why we are proposing to install a small shark pool underneath the dugout.
“We’d like to invite Craig along before our next home match against Everton to say goodbye and test the pool – there should be enough on him to keep the sharks going for a few months until his successor gets plunged in.
“We can’t possibly comment on who the new manager might be – but Sean Dyche and Sam Allardyce both would be pretty tasty appointments.”
