Leicester City are considering these two managers as potential replacements for Brendan Rodgers, according to a report from a trustworthy source.
Another mauling at the hands of Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur left the vast majority of Foxes fans in no doubt that it is now time to sack Brendan Rodgers, the figuratively dead man walking. Even the boss himself admitted post-match that his time on Filbert Way might perhaps be up.
Yet the Northern Irishman’s integrity remained in tact as he explained that he wouldn’t blame the ownership for his probable dismissal. Meanwhile numerous sources claim Leicester City’s chairman, Top Srivaddhanaprabha, is said to be considering Rodgers’ exit.
Again, there were glimpses of a team who can challenge and punish big clubs on their day; though the strong sense of a still fairly talented roster being misused is evident. The former Liverpool and Swansea City head coach is, sadly for the Blue Army, either too incompetent or obstinate to change failing and flailing tactics as well as systems within his managerial capacity.
Conceding from corners is actually now a bigger problem than it was last year. The struggling and infuriating current manager should be sacked for Leicester’s embarrassing set-piece record alone! Some supporters believe he is invariably making LCFC into a laughing stock in that regard. Instructions whilst defending are clearly tactically inept: to continually use an insufficient zone is very peculiar, almost suicidal in a career sense.
In addition, players seem unmotivated to win crosses at all cost – which others would describe as ‘downing tools’. I am more of the opinion that these particular athletes occasionally lack punishment and are in need of a some Brian Clough or Alex Ferguson-esque hairdryer treatment – or worse. Could Sean Dyche be the man to realistically keep the east Midlanders afloat in the Premier League?
Leicester City are mainly considering two predictable managers to replace Brendan Rodgers
According to reliable outlet The Telegraph, the King Power outfit are pondering relieving Rodgers from duty. There are supposedly two rather unsurprising names on the Foxes’ wishlist: ex-Burnley boss Dyche, along with Thomas Frank, currently managing Brentford.
Dyche would possibly help Leicester avoid relegation this season by solidifying the defence. But handing the 51-year-old a long-term project feels less alluring than offering the same opportunity to Frank. I can tell you right now, the Bees boss is definitely the Foxes faithful’s preferred candidate. Foxes of Leicester concur that the latter would be the most suitable in the long-term.
