Prior to the Foxes’ loss to Chelsea at King Power Stadium, the situation at Leicester City Football Club was already given an atrocious appraisal due to one person in particular.

To be poisoning your squad and the general atmosphere around a club isn’t a great addition to the potentially soon-to-be drawn up résumé. When Rodgers shall eventually be dismissed at Leicester is anyone’s guess at present. Khun Aiyawatt ‘Top’ Srivaddhanaprabha has stuck by the FA Cup-winning LCFC gaffer this long, and I don’t see the desired eventuality coming this season.

Unless the Foxes were suddenly at the foot of the league but with a chance of survival, I envisage the Northern Irishman retaining his position on Filbert Way. I cited an opportunity to avoid the drop whilst being the bottom team, because that may be the absolute push Khun Top requires to act decisively. If you’re confirmed to be relegated, it doesn’t matter anymore. The appointment of a successor must be totally incisive, too: the east Midlanders can’t afford to stagnate under a lack of vision and little ambition from a head coach any longer. If Leicester slip to 20th and it becomes almost mathematically impossible to evade the Championship, the chairman should be criticised as well for not acting sooner.

Leicester City Football Club described as poisonous because of Brendan Rodgers

Following the Southampton defeat last week, which was a real season low for the King Power outfit, a journalist described Leicester’s circumstances as “poisonous”. And one man was blamed for the scenario: Rodgers.

Dean Jones made the claim; he is a transfer reporter with a large social media following. Jones says the Foxes board has stood by the former Liverpool gaffer, but that might perhaps soon change because of the state of affairs. The implication is that discussions may be underway within the Leicester hierarchy. In addition to that, the writer noted that fans are fed up and the current squad is in desperate need of a complete overhaul.
