Brentford boss Frank and Dyche on Leicester shortlist

Brentford boss Thomas Frank and free agent Sean Dyche are on Leicester City’s radar.

Leicester’s 6-2 thrashing at Tottenham on Saturday has manager Brendan Rodgers fighting for his job.

The Telegraph says Frank and former Burnley manager Dyche is on their shortlist.

Dyche is currently out of work after being sacked by the Clarets towards the end of last season, calling time on a decade-long stint at Turf Moor that saw the club regularly punch above their weight in the Premier League. Convincing fans to welcome his unattractive style of play will surely be weighing on Leicester minds, however.

Frank, meanwhile, has taken the step up to the Premier League in his stride with Brentford, who were promoted from the Championship in 2020/21. A solid start to the new campaign, during which they have only been beaten once, has left the Bees in the top half.
