In addition to the previously reported link between Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City, two other former Premier League managers names have come up for the Leicester job.

According to Sky Sports, both Sam Allardyce and Roberto Martinez have come up in association with potentially becoming the new Leicester City manager. Martinez, currently managing the Belgian National Team has reportedly declared he’s not interested, but it appears Allardyce is.

Allardyce has been out of a job since being forced out of Everton at the end of the 2017-2018 season, after saving the Toffees from relegation. Leicester City, even with a rough run of form, may not need him in to shore things up. However, he could be a decent stop-gap replacement, if they want to go for a manager such as Brendan Rodgers
