Leicester will be in manager hunt this summer. Dean Smith is still very much in charge, but when his interim period comes to an end, there will surely be a thorough look at everything, before a permanent manager is appointed. One man that has been mentioned in the media lately is Jon Dahl Tomasson. The Dane has done a splended job at Blackburn since joining them last summer.

An appointment of Tomasson could see his first team coach at Blackburn, David Lowe, coming in. Lowe (57) is a former player at Leicester, playing as a forward, from 1992 to 1996.

David Lowe was signed by Brian Little, joining from Ipswich for a fee of £200.000. He added up 94 league appearances scoring 22 goals.

Could be seen as a journyman in the game, having spells at six different clubs in his professional career, including two periods at Wigan and Port Vale, adding up more than 600 official cup and league games over a period of 17 years.

David Lowe, born in Liverpool, has been around in the game and part of several coaching regimes including a period at Man Utd. He has also been at Wigan, working alongside Paul Jewell. Later followed Jewell to Derby.

Lowe has a very interesting CV from a Leicester point of view, having a broad base of different roles in football, from academy work all up to assistant management of first teams, as well being an interim boss at Derby. His bag of experience also include promotions, taking clubs from one level to another.

Lowe joined Blackburn as far back as 2011 as head of youth coaching, and since 2017 worked as an assitsant to both Tony Mowbray and Jon Dahl Tomasson. He has stayed loyal, and done a special and important job in assisting his current and former boss at Ewood Park.
