Next Leicester City Manager Odds: Scott Parker tipped for the hot-seat

 

Leicester City dropped out of the Premier league at the close of the 2022/23 campaign with even a win over West Ham United on the final weekend of the season not enough to save their top-flight status.

 

Considering their managerial options

Dean Smith was given the hard task of keeping Leicester City in the Premier League during his eight games in charge, however he failed in his remit and the club will be carefully considering their managerial options ahead of the 2023/24 campaign. Two wins from eight games was a very poor return for Smith and the likelihood is that there will be a new man in the hot-seat at the start of next season.

 

Success in the Championship

At the time of writing, former Fulham and AFC Bournemouth manager Scott Parker is firm favourite to succeed Smith as Foxes boss. Since leaving Club Brugge last month, Parker has been out of work and while he only managed 2 wins from his 12 games in charge of the Belgian side, he has enjoyed success in the Championship when lifting Fulham through the play-offs in 2020 and hauling Bournemouth straight up to the Premier League two years later via the automatic promotion places.

 

Other contenders

Parker is currently a 2/1 shot to take up residence at the King Power Stadium while current boss Dean Smith is close behind at 9/4. Steven Gerrard – who has also been linked to the Leeds United job – is next in the betting at odds of 7/2 while Kieran McKenna is the only other contender at single figures, the Ipswich Town boss an 8/1 shot to move to the East Midlands.
