Leicester make an approach for another former Chelsea manager

Leicester approach ex Chelsea manager

When Leicester City walk out onto the pitch at the King Power Stadium on Monday night against Liverpool, rather than having Claudio Ranieri in the dugout the Foxes will be lead out by caretaker boss Craig Shakespeare.

Leicester dropped into the bottom three on Saturday after Crystal Palace beat Boro 1-0 at Selhurst Park.

The reigning Premier League champs are starring relegation in the face, and they’ve now got a big issue to fill their vacant manger’s position with someone who can keep them up.

On Saturday night, BeIN Sports have claimed a former Chelsea boss has been approached.

So who is it?

Having been at Stamford Bridge last season after Jose Mourinho was axed by the Blues, Leicester are reportedly looking towards Dutch boss Guus Hiddink.

Now 70, one has to wonder whether Hiddink would be interested in the Leicester job. Saying that, they are a 1-0 win away from the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

The story has also been picked up by the Telegraph who report:

Although it is understood that, at present, Hiddink has indicated that he probably does not want the job he has not been entirely ruled out. Hiddink, a hugely experienced firefighter of a manager, was also in charge of Chelsea when they gained the draw that meant Leicester had won the league last May.
