Talk about emotional roller-coaster rides, Leicester City is proving to be part of quite a strong one. From the bottom of the table at christmas and winning 7 out of the last 9 games of the season, to staying up and then surprising everyone by beginning the following season in a remarkable way and going on to write one of the greatest sports stories by winning the Premier League, all eyes were on Leicester City and their title defense this season.
Though most people didn’t give them a chance to defend their astonishing title win, most expected Leicester to entertain the way they did last year. But, Leicester has been far away from the side that was running riot over any opponents thrown against them last season. The season moving on towards the end, Leicester find themselves at the wrong side of the table. Currently placed at 15th in the League table with just 24 points from 26 games, Leicester once again find themselves as part of a tight relegation battle.
And to make matters worse, they have now sacked their title winning manager and FIFA’s last years Manager of the Year award winner Claudio Ranieri from the helm. With time running out fast, the Foxes need to find a suitable replacement for the Italian. Here, we take a look at the possible contenders to take charge of the Foxes side who are in need of some urgent resurgence.
