Next Leicester manager odds: Who will replace Brendan Rodgers at the King Power?

The Foxes decided it was time for a change.

Brendan Rodgers


After four years at Leicester, Brendan Rodgers’ time at the King Power Stadium is up. Rodgers was axed with The Foxes are 19th in the Premier League and relegation a real threat for the 2016 title winners.

Leicester were winless in their last six games and the powers that be decided it was time for a change.

So, with the former Liverpool and Celtic manager now a free agent after leaving by mutual consent, who could replace him at Leicester?

Paddy’s trusty traders are here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff and they’ve priced up the runners and riders as to who might be the next Leicester manager.

Graham Potter

Graham Potter

Could there be a swift return to a Premier League dugout for Graham Potter? After being sacked by Chelsea, the former Brighton coach immediately became a leading contender for the Foxes vacancy.

Despite things not working out at Stamford Bridge, he still has plenty of credit in the bank for his work with Brighton and Leicester could fancy their chances of snapping him up.

Rafa Benitez

Lets talk about facts. Rafa Benitez has a CV as long as his ill-fitting waistcoats and would surely be a steady hand at the King Power. It feels like a job he’d jump at, given his desire to work in England, and you suspect he’d do pretty well there as well.

Adam Sadler

Google thinks you’ve made a mistake when you search for Adam Sadler but we are on about the Leicester coach, not the Hollywood actor.

Sadler is a coach at Leicester but could he be offered the role in the hotseat? He’s taken charge of one game as caretaker manager in 2019 and he won that so his 100 per cent record speaks for itself.

Steven Gerrard Aston Villa

Steven Gerrard

Liverpool legend and former Rangers and Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard is still on the lookout for a job after being given the heave-ho by the latter in the 2022/23 season. He’s got plenty of credit in the bank from his playing days but the jury might still be out in regards to his Premier League managerial credentials.

Ange Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou is set to guide Celtic to another Scottish Premiership title and he’s impressed north of the border.

It basically comes down to whether the Aussie wants to test himself in the Premier League to stick with guaranteed silverware at Celtic…

Ralph Hasenhuttl

Former Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is available but is he an inspiring pick after his Saints side got done 9-0 twice under his reign?

Thomas Frank

Brentford gaffer Thomas Frank has been among the favourites for the Leicester job following Rodgers’ exit. He’s done a brilliant job in west London and his side are eyeing a top six finish in the Premier League.

Frank, who recently signed a new contract with Brentford, would surely be a good move for the Foxes but could he be tempted to leave with the Bees pushing for the top six?

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino is still available and his stock is always high after doing an impressive job at Tottenham. However, it remains to be seen whether Pochettino is keen to go from managing the likes of Lionel Messi to taking over Leicester’s out-of-form stars.

Marcelo Bielsa

Most football fans would love former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa to return to the Premier League. Who didn’t enjoy watching his ridiculous murderball?

Whether he’d keep Leicester up is unknown but the next few months/years would certainly be entertaining for the Foxes.


Kasper Hjulmand

Kasper Hjulmand is boss of the Denmark national team. The 50-year-old has only managed in homeland but he’s going to know the Premier League inside out with a number of his players plying their trade in England.

Hjulmand guided Denmark to the semi-finals of Euro 2020 where they lost against England in extra time at Wembley.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Remember when John Terry said he’d refuse to play against Chelsea if he was at another club? If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got the Leicester job, it kind of feels like a similar situation when the Foxes face Manchester United…

Solskjaer has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford but does he have the tactical nous to impress at Leicester?

Daniel Farke

Former Norwich boss Daniel Farke has been making moves in this market. A specialist in failure in the Premier League with The Canaries he’s now in charge at Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga.
