With Paulo Sousa under mounting pressure and Martin O’Neill currently out of work having left Aston Villa at the beginning of the season, word is spreading that O’Neill could be lined up for a sensational return to Leicester…
City’s new owners * are aware of the significance of such an appointment, but would O’Neill want to return to the club he left a decade ago?
Apart from the credible maxim – ‘Never Go Back’ would the former City boss want to ‘rough it’ at Championship level, when he would surely top the short list of any Premier League job that becomes available in the next few months?
For the time being this rumour should be filed under ‘pie in the sky’ or ‘2 + 2 = 5’, though we would be delighted to see it happen.
* pending Football League apporoval of the takeover.
