Jonathan Morgan leaves Leicester post after failing to win any points in the first eight matches of the Women’s Super League.
Morgan was appointed as Leicester’s coach in 2014/2015 season. In the last season, he led the Foxes to the Women’s Championship title and secured promotion to the top tier of the English Women’s football for the first time. But after eight match days, Leicester City are sitting on the last place with zero points and goal difference -16. The board decided for a change, they feel is “now necessary to give the team the best possible chance of staying in the league in the remaining months of the season.”
“This club has been part of mine and my family’s life for 12 years from when my sister Holly Morgan joined as a young player. To have taken Leicester from the Midlands Division 1 to a FAWSL club gives me nothing but pride. Earning promotion last season in the manner we did will always be a memory I can share with the fans and the city. This season has been disappointing, with injuries contributing to a difficult start, but we haven’t achieved the results we had hoped for. I wish the Club, the staff and the players my very best,” added Morgan for the club’s website.
