According to multiple reports, Leicester City have held talks with Jesse Marsch over the managerial vacancy at the club.
Leicester City parted ways with Brendan Rodgers after over four years at the club. Rodgers brought success to the club, leading Leicester to an FA Cup win and qualifying for European football in recent seasons.
Rodgers was sacked after the club slipped down to 18th place. First-team duties were handed down to dual-caretaker bosses Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell after Rodgers left the club.
The Athletic reports that Jesse Marsch has held talks with Leicester’s hierarchy. The club are considering replacing Rodgers with the American. Leicester City are keen on Marsch due to his willingness to remain with the club even in the event of relegation to the Championship. Rafa Benitez and Sam Allardyce are also on the shortlist for the job.
Marsch has been out of a job since he was sacked by Leeds earlier this year. The American was in talks with Southampton before the Saints’ board decided to appoint caretaker manager Ruben Selles on a permanent basis.
