Yesterday evening, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri was sacked by the club, just months after winning the most unlikely of Premier League titles.
We now look at the potential replacements for the Italian.
Mancini had a spell with the Foxes in 2001 and shares the honour with Ranieri of being a Premier League winner. The former Manchester City boss is available after leaving Inter Milan last August.
Out of work since his sacking by Crystal Palace in December and has been spotted at numerous Premier League grounds since as a spectator. A man with a mixed management career but capable of saving the Foxes from the drop.
Made his name after turning around the fortunes of Brentford. A highly rated manager that left Rangers under bizarre circumstances this month. Could be an outside bet but certainly a suitable candidate for the struggles.
Frank De Boer
Despite being regarded as one of Europe’s top young managers, the Dutchman only lasted 14 games at Inter Milan following his appointment from Ajax. Could be a risky but high profile appointment with the possibility of playing an attractive style.
Consistently linked with the job at the King Power Stadium and he consistently distances himself. Although seemingly content in the Ireland job the Derryman could be the saviour that Leicester fans crave at this difficult time for the club.
Having already pulled off a great escape at the club two seasons ago, Pearson could be fancied for a third spell with the Foxes. However, after leaving under very controversial circumstances before their title winning run, it is unlikely a return will come to fruition.
