Leicester City Chief Executive Officer Tim Davies has responded angrily to criticism of the club's procedures in trying to find a manager.
Former manager Chris Kamara, writing for Sky Sports.com in an article headlined 'Foxes Hunt is a disgrace' said what Leicester did was 'shocking' and that they had 'gone about things in a completely wrong way'.
But it was the middle one of three paragraphs of his column which particularly incensed the Leicester chief...
'If you need a manager, you do not ask Burnley for permission to speak to Steve Cotterill, then ask QPR if it's OK to speak to Ian Holloway and then go to Luton to see if you can speak to Mike Newell.
'You have a board meeting, you single out your preferred target and then you make your approach to the football club. or to the manager's agent.
'Of course, you have a plan B and even plan C in place in case the one you want doesn't come off, but you do not go and sound out all three clubs about talking to their managers.
But Mr Davies responded in an email to a Foxestalk poster:
'I think it is outrageous - he is telling us to make illegal approaches - we have followed all guidelines/FA regulations - all jobs have a shortlist for a job of such importance - also we have not once commented publicly. It has been done by clubs themselves.
'Perhaps Chris does not have full facts.'
Fans have been vehement on various Leicester City websites in their condemnation of the article.
