Chelsea and Manchester United snubs prove Leicester are ‘not too small’ for Mauricio Pochettino as Foxes told to replace Brendan Rodgers with ex-Totte
Leicester and Mauricio Pochettino could be a match made in heaven, suggests ex-Premier League midfielder Darren Ambrose. Current Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers is under intense pressure following a run of six straight defeats in the top-flight. Rodgers is cutting a downbeat figure at the momentGetty Leicester are the only Premier League team without a victory so far this season and sit rock-bottom of the table with one point from seven games. The Foxes only signed one outfield player during the summer transfer window, while losing key men such as Wesley Fofana and Kasper Schmeichel. However, Rodgers still has most of the starting XI which finished eighth last season at his disposal and fans are beginning to question his future following the club’s terrible start to the campaign. Ex-Tottenham manager Pochettino has been mentioned as a possible replacement – and Ambrose believes that move would suit both parties. The Argentine has been out of work since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain in July. He was considered an option for both Chelsea and Manchester United during their recent managerial searches, but ultimately got overlooked for both jobs.

Potentially. “But he is doing nothing at the moment. Chelsea needed a manager a couple of weeks ago, they went for Graham Potter. “Man United needed a manager, they went for Erik ten Hag. Ambrose waded in on the managerial situation at the King Powertalksport “Why not go for someone like that if you’re Leicester? Money may be an issue. That’s the question mark. “That might be the biggest reason they haven’t got rid of Rodgers yet. I’m led to believe it would cost £10m to get rid of him. “If they’re struggling financially, they can’t afford to do that yet.” Watch the World Cup with talkSPORT At talkSPORT we are powered by fans, so come and join us for the ultimate World Cup fan experience this winter – at the talkSPORT Fan Zone.
