Foxes of Leicester explain the contingency plan emerging from King Power Stadium as Leicester City select a preferred manager in case they are relegated.

It’s all go at Leicester City Football Club with the team in the English capital ready to face a mightily improved Fulham outfit. The Cottagers are now a Premier League force to be reckoned with; Marco Alexandre Saraiva da Silva, or Marco Silva for short, has achieved much at Craven Cottage. But this is no time for pleasantries and the rest of it. Compliments aside – Leicester must smash Fulham on Monday evening! There is no other way to say it.

While that hypothetical scenario is unlikely, stealing three points is a similarly improbable eventuality. A draw keeps the Foxes in the hunt for EPL survival, yet a win is invaluable to the LCFC cause. Beating the drop remains very possible for Leicester; loss at FFC would make the away side’s situation drastically more ominous. Dean Smith and his coaching staff must devise an intricate and exceptional plan to dominate the hosts.

As you will be aware, Smith is only in the Leicester hotseat until the end of the season, as things stand. I am sure that he would be offered the job on a permanent basis should the east Midlands side avoid demotion to the Championship. Nevertheless, as previously stated, the task is tough. Yet LCFC have as good a chance of surviving as fellow threatened rivals Nottingham Forest, Everton and Leeds United; Southampton are surely down barring a miraculous turnaround.

If Leicester are downgraded come the end of the campaign, they have apparently already chosen their favoured boss. Swansea City gaffer Russell Martin is that man. The 37-year-old has been referred to as ‘the next Brendan Rodgers’, which scares me, to be honest. Swansea will be entitled to compensation if Leicester swipe their head coach, although he only has one-year remaining on his current deal.
