Leicester City New Manager: Leicester City, one of the Premier League’s worst teams this season, is reportedly contemplating hiring a 68-year-old relegation expert to help them avoid relegation as their last resort.
According to WhoScored, Leicester City had gone seven games without a victory in the English Premier League, a slump that eventually led to Brendan Rodgers’ dismissal as manager.
Furthermore, their present form is the poorest of any side that may be in the relegation battle. With 30 points, Crystal Palace is in 12th position, but they are just three points ahead of third-from-last Bournemouth.
Leicester City New Manager: Who will be the new manager?
It’s not out of the question that a new team falls into the bottom three each week. Leicester needs a victory badly, and Football Insider reports that sources close to the club say Sam Allardyce might be brought in as a temporary substitute for Rodgers.
The kind of football played by ‘Big Sam’ may no longer be considered innovative, but at this point, one must wonder whether it really matters.
Although Allardyce lost a relegation fight with West Brom, he had never been relegated before that season, according to FourFourTwo.
