Leicester City have reportedly sacked manager Craig Shakespeare – with Roberto Mancini the favourite to succeed him on a permanent basis.
The Italian has publicly spoken about falling in love with Leicester as a city while playing on loan in the club in 2001, and the out-of-work boss tops the betting at 7/1.
Asked about the next man for the Foxes spokesman Paddy Power said: “It was always likely to end in tragedy for Craig Shakespeare at Leicester City. Alas, poor Shakey!
“The 53-year-old has reportedly been dismissed just four months after taking permanent charge, which has presumably left him thoroughly Foxed off.
“Although, given the way his predecessor, Claudio Ranieri was sacked, I dare say he’s making much ado about nothing.”
7/1 Roberto Mancini
