There is no time to save legs for Leicester City as Dean Smith and the company tries to salvage the maximum from what remains of this season.
The interim boss, accompanied by John Terry and Craig Shakespeare, tackled the grim task at hand and yielded the first positive result for the coaches against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The squad’s morale was down, and their confidence took a hit. Lifting the collective spirits around the camp was Smith’s first assignment. Even if it’s early, a rare win does indicate a step in the right direction.
Brendan Rodgers had fallen out with this side, with players losing confidence in his leadership. Some players had one foot out the door, while others got shunned and marginalized. The sacking came too late, making the challenge of saving the club’s Premier League status dangle in limbo.
With a welcoming change, Leicester City can now marginally manage a better chance of surviving.
So, what are some of the early signs from the change in management that usher in a new sense of belief into the dressing room?
