Martin O’Neill’s odds have dramatically shortened as City’s search for a new manager goes on…
O’Neill’s name came up in a quote from City chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn in the Bangkok Post and rumours are circulating that the 59 year old would be happy to take the Leicester job as long as he could leave if offered a Premier League post, something our owners were not happy to agree to.
Yesterday Huddersfield boss Lee Clark ruled himself out of the reckoning, whereas Hull’s Nigel Pearson responded with a typically blunt: “I just find it a bit irritating if I’m honest, you know what I’m like. So I suggest we close it there.”
Meanwhile Martin O’Neill has said to Radio Leicester that he: “Did not want to talk about the Leicester job, on or off the record”.
Which, if we’re clutching at straws, isn’t a ‘no’ is it?
