Sean Dyche ‘contender for Leicester job’ with Brendan Rodgers in big danger

Sean Dyche has been considered as a major contender for the Leicester job as Brendan Rodgers fights for his job.

The Foxes have been the most disappointing team in the Premier League, where they sit at the bottom. It follows a shocking start to the season that has left them as the only top-division side without a win.

In fact, they only have a point to their name and are now five points adrift in an alarming situation for Rodgers. To add to his woes has been their defensive shoddiness, conceding a whopping 22 times in seven matches.

It has led to calls for the former Liverpool manager to be sacked and according to the Telegraph, Leicester chiefs are considering a swoop for free agent Dyche if the decision is made to axe Rodgers.

The former Burnley boss was dismissed at Turf Moor after nearly 10 years at the club where he had the Clarets solidified in the Premier League. However, in his final campaign he could not prevent them from beating the drop as he was sacked prior to their relegation to the Championship.

Should Leicester sack Rodgers, they would want to act quickly and get a replacement in as soon as possible. And that would likely be someone with Premier League experience, making Dyche a top contender.

After a 6-2 mauling at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday, Rodgers looked like a defeated man. He said: "Whatever happens I’ll have a huge amount of respect for them [the owners] because they’ve given me great support.

“I understand the game. The scoreline didn’t reflect the game but the bottom line is it’s a heavy defeat.

“They’ve given me brilliant support. Whatever happens to me at Leicester, whether I stay and fight on, I’ll always respect them."
