Three replacements for Craige Shakespeare at Leicester City


After a disappointing 1-1 draw with West Brom, Leicester City extended their winless streak to six games. The draw leaves the Foxes rooted in the relegation zone with only 6 points from 8 games. It’s not good enough and the financial demands of the Premier League have forced Leicester’s owners to take swift action. Craig Shakespeare was the man that steered the ship when Claudio Ranieri was sacked last season, however, now his honeymoon period is over and reality has finally sunk in.

Here are 3 replacements for Craig Shakespeare at Leicester City.

1Louis Van Gaal

Louis Van Gaal

It’s rumoured that the former Bayern Munich manager is keen to get back into football. After seemingly failing at Manchester United, Louis Van Gaal has been in limbo ever since. Many say his sacking was harsh, seeing as it came a day after winning the FA Cup, but others say it’s realistic of Manchester’s United expectations. Finishing outside the top 4 wasn’t good enough for the Red Devils but many will still argue that only two seasons at the club wasn’t enough for the Dutchman to implement the change he wanted.

Louis Van Gaal at Leicester City would allow the Foxes to completely change their playing philosophy. They would transform from a transition-based team into a possession-based one, as Van Gaal believes it’s the best way of limiting the opponent’s threat.

The signing of Louis Van Gaal would raise the profile of Leicester City and in return, offer Van Gaal a completely different type of challenge to his previous jobs.
