Leicester City in ‘Panic Mode’ After Sacking Brendan Rodgers – Chris Sutton


Leicester City’s decision to sack Brendan Rodgers so late in the season has been met with shock and dismay by former Premier League striker Chris Sutton. Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club, he described the situation as “absolute panic” and questioned how the club had allowed things to get to this stage. He suggested that if the owners were unhappy with Rodgers, they should have made a change during the international break, rather than waiting until now.

The Foxes are currently second from bottom and two points from safety with eight games remaining, having lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches. They have since appointed Dean Smith as their new manager until the end of the season, after Jesse Marsch reportedly turned them down.

Sutton does not believe that Smith or any other replacement could have a similar impact to that of Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace, who have won their first two games under the 75-year-old to move six points clear of the bottom three. He fears for Leicester’s future, saying: “Leicester are bang in trouble and it doesn’t really matter who comes in. I really fear for them.”
