Dyche leading race to replace Shakespeare?

Dyche leading race to replace Shakespeare?

Next Leicester Manager
With the sudden sacking of Craig Shakespeare, we’ve taken a look at who is in line to take over at Leicester City and it’s hard to avoid Sean Dyche’s name as to a potential leading candidate to try and guide the club away from the dreaded relegation zone. Shakespeare’s unexpected sacking came the day after Leicester drew 1-1 at home to West Brom on Monday. With just one win so far this season, Leicester City find themselves stuck towards the bottom of the Premier League table in 18th place, currently occupying the final relegation place. With one win in their last 7 games, losing three and drawing three, it could prove to be a crucial few months in the build up to Christmas for the Foxes. After taking over from Claudio Ranieri, Craig Shakespeare’s honeymoon period from the end of last season didn’t transfer into the new campaign, which has resulted in the search for another manager beginning for the Leicester hierarchy.

Dyche

It is clear that the Leicester owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has a ruthless nature about him. The sacking of Ranieri last season caused lots of debate, as the previous season the Italian performed miracles at the club by bringing the Premier League trophy to Leicester for the first time. Only for Ranieri to be shown the door in early February.

We have identified Sean Dyche as the main contender to be the next Leicester Manager, as have the bookies.

Sean Dyche has emerged as the early front runner to take over at the King Power Stadium with reports surfacing that the Burnley boss would be interested in speaking to Leicester City to discuss the role. Dyche currently has family based around Northampton, roughly an hour’s drive away from Leicester. No doubt this would definitely make the role appear more attractive for the current Burnley boss.

Could Dyche be prized away from Burnley? Dyche has cemented himself as one of Burnley’s greatest ever managers and is a firm favourite amongst the fans. It is clear that the manager does not always have the final say at Leicester as Shakespeare made it clear that he was unhappy at the sale of Danny Drinkwater. This could be a potential stumbling block for Dyche, as whilst at Burnley, Dyche reportedly has a lot of control over incomings and outgoings. Another potential obstacle in acquiring Sean Dyche at Leicester City could be the owner of the club. Will Dyche be willing to leave his secure role at Burnley and move to Leicester where the owner is known to hire and fire managers in recent years despite unexpected success?
