Summer Break 2019 - Leicester City

Aug 13, 06:26 AM
In our penultimate episode, we’re in the midlands with one of the Premier League’s nouveau riches. 

Leicester City came from the relative poverty of a Premier League relegation battle in 2015 to winning the whole damn thing a season later in what was, without doubt, one of the finest moments of English football’s storied history. 

But this vertiginous rise to the lofty heights of the Premier League’s elite had a strange effect on the club. The following season, Claudio Ranieri was sacked, to be replaced by Craig Shakespeare. 

Shakespeare, it turned out, was also ‘not to be’ and so followed a succession of managers joining then leaving the club until Brendan Rodgers arrived at the end of last season. 

Will Rodgers be able to shake off the curse of the 2015-16 title-winning season? Or is he simply its most imminent victim?
