Leicester City’s hunt for a new manager begins following the end of Brendan Rodgers’ four-year tenure at the club. Rodgers was defeated by Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, which proved to be the last straw for his time at the helm. Over the years, Rodgers transformed the Foxes from a mid-table team to top-four challengers.
Leicester City’s owners have set their sights on appointing a manager that can continue to bring success to the club as it continues to face fierce competition on and off the pitch. The Foxes have long been known for their astute recruitment of players and the club must find a manager that can continue to develop those signings to compete at the top level of English football.
One of the main issues facing the new manager will be how to hold onto the club’s star players. Leicester City’s attacking trio of James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, and Kelechi Iheanacho have all been linked with moves away from the club, and it will be up to the new manager to convince these players to stay and help the team build on its successes.
Leicester City’s new manager will also need to be able to balance domestic and European competitions effectively. With the club set to compete in next season’s Europa League, the new manager will need to make sure that the squad is able to handle the demands of playing in multiple competitions while also contending for Premier League success.
In conclusion, Leicester City’s search for a new manager is crucial to the club’s continued success. The new manager must be able to develop the current crop of players and hold onto them, balance domestic and European competitions and compete at the highest level of English football. The task ahead of the new manager is a challenging one, but if they can succeed, Leicester City will undoubtedly continue to be contenders in the Premier League.
