Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers could go into the summer transfer window without a chief recrutiment manager in place at the club.
Lee Congerton left his position earlier in the year to take on a job as director of football at Atalanta. This will of course put pressure on the manager and his work regarding transfers.
Not much has been said other than Susan Whelan and Jon Rudkin being in charge of the chase and that Brendan Rodgers will have a final word on any appointment, but at this moment who it will be is still guesswork.
Congerton and Rodgers together can be satisfied with their recruitment work as we have seen the signings of James Justin and Wesley Fofana especially being fantastic work. A number of other recruitments and what was done last summer makes the total of this work a bit grey as loads of money has been used on players that hardly has had a look in.
Steve Walsh is a name mentioned as his past with Leicester is a beauty with magnificant moves being made regarding N’Golo Kantè, Wes Morgan, Danny Drinkwater, Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton, just to mention a few that has been extraordinary for Leicester.
Just weeks after Leicester had won the league he decided to join Everton in a similar job. The work at Everton is probably not famous and difficulties in the management regarding different aspects of transfer decission making made him leave Goodison Park.
Steve Walsh is today an advisor for the newly started MLS set up Charlotte FC and they have started ok with a number of good players added to their new and fresh squad, including former Leicester man Christian Fuchs.
There are of course a number of names discussed by media, but we do believe that this decission might be the most important at a football club if you don’t count the manager.
Will be interesting to see who will be coming in?
