Sources at Leicester City have apparently leaked information that the Foxes have held talks with Olympique de Marseille manager Christophe Galtier about the vacant managerial position at the King Power Stadium. Phillip Cocu was sacked just 11 days ago, after a poor start to the season saw Leicester down in the relegation zone of the Barclays Premier League in the middle of November.

Galtier is believed to be amongst the favourites for the job at Leicester, with Teemu Tainio of West Brom also being a prime contender. However the Frenchmen is believed to be the front runner as his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, meaning Marseille would need a small amount of compensation. The Frenchmen, who is believed to be weighing up his options, as to whether to stay at the Stade Velodrome or to move to pastures new, is believed to be intrigued by the chance to manage in the Premier League.

Oh shit...... Will you take it???????

With some glaring issues in our defence, going forward Romain Alessandrini has been the standout player, contributing with 3 goals. It was again between Lucas Ocampos and Alessandrini, and the Frenchmen’s performances have been marginally better therefore granting


A much, much better month, that has seen us continue our stay at the top of the table, even if Monaco do have a couple of games in hand over us. The performances have been much more pleasing and we’re starting to look a little bit more solid in defence after the victory against Ajaccio which is definitely a positive. The result against Lyon was a freak result where they were buoyed on by the hysteria surrounding Casanova’s arrival as manager although that doesn’t take anything away from the fact we should have done much better. The performances against Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux though were a lot better even if our defence did slip a few times, but that is something we are working on! In the Champions League, to have secured a place in the knockout round is fantastic, especially after we’ve come through such a tough group, and we don’t need to go full throttle against Lazio next time out, which is pleasing as there is nothing riding on the result for us anyway. Hopefully next month we can continue to push on for the Ligue 1 title and really continue to improve our form. The Coupe de la Ligue starts next month, adding some extra fixtures to our calendar, but we are looking forward to the games and can’t wait to get started.

Great month man
Almost on level pegging with Monaco, I feel you can blow them away though!
2016-04-15 11:42#229555 MJK46 : Great month man

Thanks mate! :D

Haha almost, this one's gonna go right down to the wire and hopefully PSG don't come back into it like last season!
I reckon you should buy Lacazette just to kill Lyon :P
2016-04-15 19:49#229590 Justice : I reckon you should buy Lacazette just to kill Lyon :P

Haha I would love to do that but i'm not sure i'm ever going to receive a big enough transfer budget to spend the huge transfer fee he'd command to join one of his biggest rivals :P
