Leicester City Fires Coach Paulo Sousa After One Win in Nine Soccer Games

Leicester City fired manager Paulo Sousa after the club won just one of its first nine matches and sits in last place in the second division of English soccer.

The former player on the Portugal national team was hired in July to replace Nigel Pearson. Goalkeeper coach Mike Stowell and coach Chris Powell will take temporary charge while the team looks for a new manager, Leicester said today on its website.
