After Ranieri’s Sacking, Who Appeals In Next Leicester City Manager Odds?
Claudio Ranieri’s sacking opens up the way for a new manager and we list the next Leicester manager odds in the comparison table above, writes Ross.
It has certainly come as a shock that Ranieri has lost the role so soon after his greatest achievement. Not only did he defy near five-figure odds to win the Premier League last season, Leicester are still in the running for the Champions League. They are just a goal down after their first leg away match to Sevilla in the round of 16, returning with an away goal to boast about.
In the League, Leicester are certainly flirting with relegation and the wheels had come off under Ranieri, particularly this calendar year when they just could not score. However there are mixed views among the pundits, with some saying it was a brave decision to eject Ranieri and others claiming it was a cruel and disloyal blow to Ranieri, who had achieved the impossible so recently.
Gary Lineker, the former Leicester City player, claims to have shed tears at the news that Ranieri was being turfed out so ungraciously. The argument that he can not suddenly be a bad manager does hold water. Nevertheless, there were claims that he had lost some of the dressing room. Maybe that is where the blame lies, with players who just were not trying anymore.
At least that was until their first match under caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare at home to Liverpool, when the players showed how they had been saving themselves all season by putting in an awesome performance to beat the visitors 3-1. It was shocking how good Leicester had become, the first glimpse of the team of last season, and similarly horrifying as to how little effort they had obviously been expending until now.
Ranieri, apparently sacked after a player revolt, will have been choking on his pizza at the level of improvement the players found against Liverpool. Whatever the case, and however sad, Ranieri is Leicester City’s past. So here we are with Premier League champions looking for a new manager. It is a betting market that has attracted plenty of attention as the process of finding a replacement drags on.
Craig Shakespeare has now shown he can get a tune out of the squad with that victory over Liverpool, but they still face a dog fight to avoid the drop, just one year after being crowned champions of England. Is Craig Shakespeare a big enough name for the owners to appoint as permanent manager? Perhaps he has just bought himself more time as a temporary solution. The bookies think he might just have earned himself the job.
The likes of Alan Pardew (pictured), Guus Hiddink, Nigel Pearson, Roberto Di Matteo, Roberto Mancini and bumbling Roy Hodgson (Jamie Vardy for corners?) are just a few of the many names also mentioned in the running for the role. Maybe you have an idea who the owners will plump for. Check the next Leicester manager odds above and decide for yourself.
