Myth 3: He’s an elite coach
Leicester City fans can’t agree with this as when you watch some of the most hilariously incompetent set-piece defending for over two seasons it tends to grind you down. Many analysts on football shows like Match Of The Day or Monday Night Football would point out the calamitous errors on a regular basis. The foxes would add to this with basic defending mistakes on a consistent basis.
As the attacking flair of his more forward-thinking players dried up, his defensive flaws as a coach would be constantly exposed. It’s worth remembering that up to his last game in charge, he had gone 13 Premier League games without a clean sheet. The players absolutely deserve their share of the blame in this regard, but for a manager that was on a reported £10million a year to not address this defensive shambles was negligent. Let’s also not forget that when Wesley Fofana returned to the side last season, the foxes still couldn’t keep things tight at the back. He may go on to his next Premier League job and be a success, but I’ll be surprised if he is ever given as long as he managed at the King Power Stadium ever again and certainly not on the fortunes he yielded from the King Power Group.
