Leicester shocked the footballing world after sacking Claudio Ranieri just nine months after he lead them to the Premier League title.
Surprisingly, it looks like former England manager Roy Hodgson is the man in line to take over, after he reportedly held talks with the club this week.
You remember Roy don’t you? In case you’d forgotten, he’s the guy who masterminded one of the worst results in England’s history at the Euros last summer.
It’s strange to think that the guy who led the national team to a 2-1 defeat against Iceland in June is the favourite to take over at the champions of England in March, but football’s a funny old game at times, isn’t it?
Despite Hodgson finding success at West Brom and Fulham in the past, the news surprised a few people, and some of the Twitter reactions are pretty hilarious. Check them out below:

Leicester City replacing a managerial hero with Roy Hodgson. Thank God a huge club like Liverpool would never do anything that stupid.
