Paulo Sousa has officially been appointed the new manager of Leicester City; the former Swansea boss has signed a three year contract at the Walkers Stadium. Sousa is the sixth manager to take charge of the East Midlands club, since Milan Mandaric was appointed chairman in the year 2007.
Sousa’s backroom staff will consist of Bruno Oliveria who was Sousa’s assistant at Swansea, while Chris Powell and Mike Stowell stay on at Leicester City for yet another season. The 39 year old guided the “Swans” to 7th position in the Championship last season, after failing to claim a play-off place on the last day of the campaign.
Sousa stated earlier today on LCFC.COM, “I am delighted to be here, it is a great club with great supporters and a rich history and I am very excited by the challenge”. Mandaric also stated that he will back Paulo Sousa with summer transfers.
With an attractive style of management and his approach to make the defence a solid force, good times may well be in store for Leicester City.
