Allen in at Leicester

Published Add your comment

MK Dons have confirmed Martin Allen has left them to become the new manager of Leicester.

Allen, who led the Dons to the League Two play-offs this season before losing to Shrewsbury in the semi-finals, takes over the Walkers Stadium hotseat having been given permission to talk to Foxes chairman Milan Mandaric earlier this week.

Nigel Worthington and Neil Warnock were also on Mandaric´s shortlist, with the former having guided the Foxes to safety in the Championship after taking over from sacked boss Rob Kelly for the last five games of the season. But 41-year-old Allen has been given the job and has signed a three-year deal.
