Roy Hodgson the new favourite for Leicester job


Craig Shakespeare did his chances of landing the Leicester job on a permanent basis no harm at all with a 3-1 win over Liverpool.

The Foxes were widely criticised for suddenly rediscovering their form after Claudio Ranieri’s sacking.

Ultimately, though, they will value the three points much more than anything else.

It remains to be seen who will be handed the ominous task of keeping the champions in the top flight.

Shakespeare is one option, but it’s likely the board will opt for a manager with more experience.

Nigel Pearson’s name is in the frame, but according to the Mirror, it’s Roy Hodgson who is now leading the pack.

The former England manager is believed to have held talks with the club’s owners, though he may not be the most popular choice given his role overseeing the Three Lions’ exit from Euro 2016 at the hands of Iceland.

Unfortunately, the manner of Ranieri’s sacking has rather tied Leicester’s hands and they may be left with anyone who will take the job.

Early favourite Roberto Mancini has no interest in the post, so that may pave the way for Hodgson to return to English football.
