Head Coach and Manager Brendon Rodgers is on the verge of getting sacked by Leicester City. Leicester City are without a win in their last 7 games since the start of this season’s Premier League. One point was gained in seven games, and Leicester sit at the bottom of the Premier League.

The failure to spend in the transfer market is the reason given by Current Leicester boss Brendon Rodgers who is on the brink of sacking. Brendon Rodgers has indicated that he is close to the dismissal, speaking after the spurs game he said,
“The owners will do what it is they feel they need to do. I’m not daft, I know football, and the last six games don’t make great reading. “Whatever happens, I’ll have a huge amount of respect for them [the owners] because they’ve given me great support.” I understand the game.
Leicester City could soon announce their manager’s sacking and reports that they are already looking at candidates to replace him.

Our top five picks to replace Brendon Rodgers are as follows:
1) Thomas Frank
Thomas Frank has taken the step up to the Premier League in his stride with Brentford, who were promoted from the Championship in 2020/21. A solid start to the new campaign, during which they have only been beaten once, has left the Bees in the top half. The chances of Thomas Frank moving are very slim, though. But Chelsea’s move for Graham Potter has shown that anything can happen in football.
2) Mauricio Pochettino
It was only a few years ago that the former Tottenham man was regarded as one of the best coaches in the world, having guided Spurs to the 2019 Champions League final. His spell at Paris Saint-Germain was considered to be a difficult time for him. Despite winning titles and trophies, he could not get the expected performances out of Mbappe, Neymar, and Messi. He could seek a challenge at the King Power Stadium to help rebuild his reputation, but without money to spend, it would take a lot of convincing to get him to join.
3) Sean Dyche
Dyche is currently out of work after being sacked by the Clarets towards the end of last season, calling time on a decade-long stint at Turf Moor that saw the club regularly punch above their weight in the Premier League. Convincing fans to welcome his unattractive style of play will surely be weighing on Leicester’s minds and replacing Brendon Rodgers, but as things stand, they need to win games and get points to avoid being in the relegation battle.
4) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Solskjaer has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford last year, but does he have the tactical nous to turn Leicester’s fortunes around? His management style could boost Leicester City and he could replace Brendon Rodgers. He will make them play good attacking football. He is suitable for this job. But is he ready to come back to management? Is he ready to come back to England? These will be the talking points.
5) Claudio Ranieri
Claudio Ranieri guided Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016, but could he return to his old stomping ground? He also faced the same situation as Brendon Rodgers, and the owners decided to replace him rather than stick with him after the title-winning last season.
Ranieri, 70, was last in charge of Watford but he was axed earlier this year. Can he come back to help Leicester climb the table? This would be poetic, wouldn’t it? Never say never!
