Leicester City Transfer News: Former Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch has been mentioned as a possible alternative for the Northern Irishman, and the Foxes are seeking a competent, long-term replacement.
According to reports, the American was the frontrunner to take over at King Power Stadium, but the deal ultimately fell through.
There have been rumours that Leicester City has other candidates in mind to replace Rodgers. It seems that they are also keeping an eye on people like Rafael Benitez, Sam Allardyce, and Dean Smith.
Leicester City Transfer News: Since Brendan Rodgers’ recent resignation, Leicester City has been connected with many potential managers
Benitez is a proven winner who has won league crowns and the Champions League with various teams in the top leagues. Adding him to the Leicester City staff would be a bold move, and it’s possible that he’d boost the team’s performance next season.
Meanwhile, Allardyce has extensive experience as a Premier League manager, having kept many teams afloat through significant difficulty. Fans, however, will be expecting a manager who can help them win trophies, and the former England manager may not be the most inspirational option.
Smith is another instance in point; he has shown promise in the Premier League before but ultimately represents a disappointing choice due to his lack of track record of success.
