Joe Royle has withdrawn his interest in becoming the new manager of Leicester, despite a positive meeting with owner Milan Mandaric.
"I had a chat with Milan Mandaric last week and we got on great," Royle told the Leicester Mercury. "But I decided towards the end of last week, for personal reasons, it would be best if I withdrew my interest."
Mandaric is hopeful he will fill the post during the current international break. Graeme Souness, Peter Reid and Jean Tigana were reportedly among the candidates interviewed along with Royle last week.
