Former fox back in the hot seat, new challenge in exciting return

DATE: 06.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Former City manager Craig Levein is back in the hot seat at Hearts. This will be his 2nd round as a manager for the Edinburgh based club. He will also stay on as Director of Football

The football tour of Levein is one to admire. He has done the full circle in management after taking charge for the 2nd time, spending four years in charge earlier from 2000 to 2004. Hearts finished from 3rd to 5th in the SPL during Levein's previous seasons in charge.

Levein returned to Hearts in 2014 taking up the role as director of football, and enjoyed his time, before he know returns to the manager seat 13 years after leaving the job for the Leicester City position.

He has in between been at Raith Rovers, Dundee United and three years as head coach of Scotland. The time at Leicester was not one to be too proud of flirting with relegation before getting sacked and Rob Kelly being the one taking over.

A bit simular to Claudio Ranieri, who also was replaced by his assistant. Rob Kelly lasted one season, he is now at Fleetwood as an assistant manager and working alongside Uwe Rossler.

Levein is expected to be able to bring Hearts back in contention for a place in Europe. The club is currently eight in the SPL with four points, but as such an early stage in the season, it could be possible to get into the top of the league with a relatively good group of players.

Christoph Berra has returned to Hearts this season after a long period in England with Wolves and Ipswich. Berra was this week on duty for Scotland and one of the internationals in the squad. He is happy to see Levein in charge, believing him to bring back "old glory".

Levein was fond of his former Hearts players, while in charge at City, bringing in the likes of Mark De Vries, Alan Maybury, Alex Kisnorbo, Joe Hamill all signed from the Edinburgh club.

Levein signed a number of players while at Leicester. Two of them, Iain Hume and Matty Fryatt both became fans favourites while at the club. Especially Fryatt made his mark and was a key player during the first period of Nigel Pearson, and later following him to Hull City.

Levein had good intentions during his time with Leicester, had limited funds to buy players from and came in after a time of great difficulties and restructions. He later showed at Dundee United that he had great abillity as a manager and was appointed Scotland boss.

As a player he was all of his professional career with Hearts, being one of their real legends, spending 14 years at Tynecastle, playing 326 league games and scoring 15 goals. Levein has also 16 caps for Scotland, being part of the 1990 World Cup squad in Italy.
