  5. 'You have to be relentless'

    West Bromwich Albion

    West Brom manager Tony Pulis, on the sacking of Claudio Ranieri as Leicester boss: "You can't take your eye off the ball at this level. You have to be relentless, because it's such a difficult league. But I am really disappointed for him because he is a decent guy and I'm disappointed for the club in general too, they seemed so close and together like a family. 

    "With 13 matches to go, he could have had a great end to the season, and they are one game away from the Champions League quarter-finals, they could easily win that game."

    The 33-year-old took a  six-week break from the game  last summer after a disappointing Test series against Sri Lanka.

    "Nick had a difficult season in 2016, but he remains a high-quality player," managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said.

    "He is fit and still has an extremely strong desire to score runs, and to contribute to the success of Middlesex."

    The right-hander scored just 51 runs in five innings against Sri Lanka, and has not added to his 16 Test caps since that series ended.

    Aston Villa

    Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce, on the sacking of Claudio Ranieri as Leicester manager: "We understand as managers now that we are the whipping boys. I'm scratching my head, like everyone else is, asking myself how someone who delivered the finest achievement in football last year, could now be sacked. We're talking about Leicester here.

    "The lunatics are running the asylum. It's a harsh and brutal world we work in today. A manager's lifespan is probably now about a year. It's baffling, and morally wrong."

    England coach Eddie Jones, was live on the BBC Sport Facebook page  earlier today, here he is on  dropping Jonathan Joseph:  “We wanted to look at another option at 13. We know JJ can play 13, so can Elliot Daly and we want to have three options with Ben Te’o. I seem him as both as a 12 and a 13.” 

    On whether they can beat the All Blacks: “We’re happy to play the All Blacks tomorrow. I have no doubt if we do that, we are capable of beating them. We don’t control when we play them, all we have to control is getting better and getting better every day and when we have a game.”

    Away from Claudio Ranieri for a moment to some Premier League transfer news...

    Burnley have signed young striker Harry Limb from ninth-tier side Wisbech Town, after the 17-year-old scored 22 goals for the United Counties League Premier Division side this season.

    Limb also had a trial at Swansea City earlier this year, and although Burnley were not obliged to pay the Cambridgeshire side for the player as he was on non-contract terms, they have given a donation to the club and arranged for a "strong" XI to play Wisbech in a pre-season friendly.

    "If I'm honest with you, I thought he'd be a bit-part player this season," said Wisbech boss Dick Creasey.

    "He'd played very little men's football, but he grasped it straight away and the rest is history."

    "It's a great moment for the fans, and I hope that we can give them pleasure in this game.

    "The last major trophy for the club was in 1976. It would be fantastic to take a good result."

  20. 'I felt sick last night'

    Rugby Union

    Here's more from England manager Eddie Jones on the Claudio Ranieri sacking: "When we first got together one of the things we talked about was Leicester City and what they went through last season, what we could learn from it. 

    "We put down a number of variables and we've tried to attend to them as we go along and last night was another chapter in it. 

    "I must admit I felt a bit sick hearing the news because he's such a great, honourable guy and he's done a fantastic job. The papers want to blame the players for his demise, the papers always want to have a scapegoat, but the reality is when you're successful it's a combination of players and staff working together, and when you're unsuccessful it's a combination of players and staff too."
