  4. Hiddink for Leicester?

    Who should replace Ranieri?


    Josh: Guus Hiddink - stopped the rot at Chelsea when they were a sinking ship. He's a proven Premier League manager and commands respect.

  7. Keane for Leicester?

    Who should replace Ranieri?


    Toby:  Roy Keane - not the best manager necessarily, but he'd sort the players out. 

    Taylor and Besty: Ian Wright has told us numerous times that Alan Pardew is a great manager...maybe him? 

    Sam Harris: Nigel Pearson. Can bring the spark back into Leicester. Really sad that Ranieri couldn't build on last season.

  8. 'I wouldn't go to Leicester'

    Martin O'Neill

    Republic of Ireland manager on Sportsweek

    I am really enjoying being an International manager and we have a job to do. We have got a big World Cup qualifying game coming up in a couple of weeks time against Wales and I couldn't be distracted [by the thought of returning to the Premier League as Leicester City manager]. 

    I want to see if we can try and get through, whether we don't, whether we fall flat on our faces, I don't know but the Euros last year were great and I am getting so much enjoyment out of this. 

    I wouldn't be going [to Leicester]. I am enjoying this at the moment.
