Leicester insist no contact with O'Neill over emotional return

Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn insists no contact has been made with former manager Martin O'Neill.

Sven-Goran Eriksson was shown the door by the npower Championship outfit on Monday night after a year in charge, with the Foxes having won just five games this season despite being only two points off the play-off places.

When asked if he intended to approach O'Neill about the position, Raksriaksorn said: "I don't want to say that because I have to open my mind now, not just what the news [media] or the fans want.

"I have to listen to everyone and make a decision very carefully.

"The next manager should be taking us to the Premier League and I think he has to know this league, because it's very tough, very tight."
