Sven-Goran Eriksson Sacking: The 5 Most Likely Successors at Leicester City

Sven-Goran Eriksson left Leicester City by mutual consent yesterday after an average start to the Championship season.

The Foxes are currently 13th in the league after racking up 19 points in 13 games. In the meantime, the club's academy director Jon Rudkin and coach Mike Stowell will be joint acting managers.

After spending over £10 million on new players this summer, it was unlikely that anything but promotion would satisfy the club's owners. After losing 3-0 to Millwall at the weekend, the game was up for Eriksson.

For the incoming manager, promotion is certainly still going to be the target. The club lies only five points behind second placed Middlesbrough, and just two off the playoff spots.

The swift dismissal of Eriksson may put off some managers, but the wages on offer and funds available may turn the heads of some big name bosses.

So who will be the man to take over at the King Power Stadium? Who can guide them back to the top tier of English football? Write your thoughts below.
