Favourites for Leicester City manager

After Claude Puel was sacked by Leicester City after 16 months in charge, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the King Power Stadium.

The departure came after they were beaten 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace on Saturday, leaving the club 12th in the Premier League and making it their fifth loss in their last six league games.

Take a look at who are the top six favourites below and on the next page.



Current Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is reported by the Sunday Times to be part of a two-man shortlist to replace Puel.

There has been plenty of speculation on Rafa’s future at the Magpies as frustrations on the amount he was being able to spend in the transfer windows grew until Miguel Almiron signed for a club record fee.

He has also reportedly rejected two recent offers for contract extensions, as the club hasn’t answered his questions about the way the club is being run, or given him assurances over investment for the future.

Benitez’s contact ends this summer and talks about a new deal have been postponed until their Premier League safety is assured.

Pearson is a former Foxes manager, where he won the Championship and League One during his time between 2011 and 2015.

His most recent job was with Belgian First Division B side Oud-Heverlee Leuven but lasted 17 months, took them bottom having managed just 22 points from 24 games and there were many fan protests to get him out of the club.

Lennon, a former Leicester player, has been linked with a return to his ex-club following his departure from the Hibernian job.

He recently expressed to Sky Sports that he would be keen to return to management in England but said he ideally would really consider any future manager roles at a Scottish club.
