  • Sampaoli warns struggling Leicester against living in the past

    By Richard Martin SEVILLE (Reuters) - Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli said his side's Champions League opponents Leicester City and beleaguered coach Claudio Ranieri cannot live on past glories as they try to rescue a disastrous season that has taken them to the brink of relegation. Leicester's sensational title win last season has been hailed as one of the greatest sporting miracles of all time but the memory of their historic triumph has been overshadowed by their domestic slump this campaign. The champions are hovering one point above the relegation zone and were sent crashing out of the FA Cup on Saturday by League One side Millwall, yet Ranieri has avoided the sack on the strength of last year's remarkable campaign.
