What’s more the Daily Mail have claimed that the Foxes hierarchy may have actually decided to get rid of the 51-year-old but then changed their minds. Members of staff at the club had reportedly been told of his departure 24 hours after an incident where he grabbed a Crystal Palace player by the throat.
The former Newcastle United boss will be in charge when the relegation strugglers take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Tuesday. The side will surely not be helped in their endeavours by the confusion over their manager’s future.
With Leicester City facing the Gunners, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City in their next five matches things may not get any better on the field of play anytime soon.
