Why Steve Cooper would be a bad manager appointment at Leicester

Leicester City continue their hunt for a new manager after the early exit of Enzo Maresca. The Foxes have many names being thrown about, so, here are a few of them and why the former Nottingham Forest boss would be a poor appointment at the King Power.

These statistics paint a bleak painting of a coach that does not handle poor situations well, that cannot develop a team without excessive spending, that does not instil the mentality to win matches or come back from losses to gain draws, and simply lacks the tactical know-how needed. The Welsh head coach will not have oodles of funds available for recruitment, he will have a squad that can perform well but is used to a certain style, and he will not have the luxury of the points total starting at zero.

To conclude, Steve Cooper's appointment - if it were to happen - would be a catastrophically poor decision by the board and further illustrate the ineptitude of some in high office at the club. Leicester must not abandon the project, reset the clock on our development, and throw it all away when already faced with punishment due to PSR breaches. To do so would threaten the very place this team fought so hard to regain.

Instead then, there are realistically three options available which would benefit the club at this time. Nistelrooy had no fees attached, although his wages might not be a slender as Coopers, and offers the same style of football as Maresca with a little more aggression and progression included. Corberan would incur a compensation fee, but has plenty of experience in English football now with West Bromwich Albion, and again follows a possession-based style. Finally, should the Foxes wish to abandon the style, Moyes may not be cheap but he is certainly a better head coach than Cooper.
