Fans lick their lips over Lennon

Could former City legend Neil Lennon emerge as favourite to take charge at Leicester City in a player/manager role?.

The prospect of Lennon returning to City's midfield is a mouthwatering one for fans who remember his swashbuckling performances for City in the splendidly succesful Martin O'Neil era.

Lennon's agent,Martin Reilly, has indicated that his client, currently a Celtic player, IS interested in the job and already City fans are drooling over who he might link up with to form a partnership that might restore their fast-fading fortunes.

Already they are imagining Lennon teaming up in central midfield with emerging prospect James Wesolowski should Gudjonsson move, as expected, in the summer.

Could he also link up managerially with Martin O'Neil's former City assistant John Robertson? Or Harry Bassett? Or even with Dion Dublin.

Lennon has no managerial experience and it is doubtful that he will be particularly familiar with the qualities of the current City squad. He will definitely need some help.

Some might ask if his appointment would smack more of hope than of realistic expectation?

But could it as easily be talismanic? City enjoyed such wonderful times in the Martin O'Neil/Neil Lennon days that fans are almost desperate to re-discover some of the stardust which paved their footballing journeys in those days.

Lennon, Celtic's captain, joined Leicester from Crewe in 1996 for 750,000 and helped them gain promotion to the Premiership three months later. He won the League Cup twice and played in the UEFA Cup with City as well as representing Northern Ireland.

Were Martin O'Neil available he would surely walk back into his old job.

But he's not. John Robertson/Steve Walford have been touted as the nearest option up to now but suddenly the lights are all glittering on the pinball machine.
