We have now officially entered that phase of the season where recognized clubs are showing the door to their managers. Last week Leicester City parted ways with their manager Craig Shakespeare and yesterday Everton sacked Ronald Koeman.
The Premier League Champions from two seasons ago – Leicester City are currently 14th on the league table while Everton after spending such heavily during the summer make up the relegation table along with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. So it was clearly evident why these two managers were told to leave their respective clubs.
But now the big question is who are likely to fill up these vacancies in the coming week?
While a few initial names have come up during the past few days but clearly the biggest amongst them all has to be former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs.
Giggs told SkySports that he is interested in taking up the managerial role at either of these two clubs but also admitted to the fact that he will have to stand in the queue along with a lot of other contenders.
Giggs said, “I think you look at those two teams, Leicester being champions two seasons ago, Everton being a fantastic club with a fantastic history, for me, these are clubs I would be interested in,
“However, there are a lot of coaches out there who would be interested in those positions.”
According to ESPN, former England manager Sam Allardyce is one of the early contenders to being the successor to Ronald Koeman while Alan Pardew has applied for the job at Leicester City. Allardyce though has made himself unavailable for the role at Leicester City.
But it reality Ryan Giggs will definitely be at the very end of this potential managers list – if there was any. And this is mainly because the former United player does not have any sort of managerial experience apart from managing Manchester United for four games after the club had sacked David Moyes.
