Looking back in time, Leicester do have a certain pattern regarding successful manager appointments, and Brendan Rodgers is indeed one in that category.
He has in his days at Leicester been 5th twice in Premier League, won the FA Cup and taken Leicester to a semi-final in Europe. This is history, but still not to be faulted by anyone, as it tells a good story.
Over the years we have not seen many Leicester managers turning down a future at the club and can just count four in the last 60 years. Frank O’Farrel, Jock Wallace, Martin O’Neill and Gary Megson are those who moved elsewhere instead of continuing, as they had no sack treat over their head when they jumped ship.
We do love a patient Khun Top as he is showing grand leadership. He will give Brendan Rodgers time to turn fortunes, as the World Cup break might be the time to value further.
Looking at the names of other candidates to be mentioned as possible manager replacements, you can count out Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel. They are not interested in Leicester. Rafael Benitiz is not a candidate that would fit Leicester. They will all need a bigger kitty of money than Khun Top will offer.
Leicester needs to act in relation to their DNA. We all know the size of the current fanbase, revenue limits and infrastructure challenges that needs to be sorted. To be able to compete and set new goals as a club, Brendan Rodgers looks the best candidate going forward.
When you ask for a change, you need to carefully take into consideration what your alternatives are. Any appointment must be considered in every aspect.
If a change is to be made we do feel that a British manager is the best as foreign choices often comes with a bit of a package. Looking at candidates, most of the names are not in a job at present. None of them are perfect, and not really the sort of manager you would describe as perfect.
Fans can look at names and believe in their head that certain candidates will be ideal, but still most of them looks far from what Leicester need at present.
Scott Parker is at present out of a job, he is one that fits the DNA of Leicester. He has managed to promote both Fulham and Bournemouth from Championship level to Premier League. He is young and available. Sacked at Bournemouth after that massive failure at Anfield. Not seen in any list of possible new men at Leicester. But could be one moving abroad if Nice looks to part with Lucien Favre.
TCF hopes that Brendan Rodgers will turn things around and build his bond to the strongest. He is still the best candidate and manager solution at Leicester.
