Leicester chairman Milan Mandaric has revealed his doubts over Martin Allen´s ability to lead the Foxes to "the top of the mountain" were behind his sacking.

Days of speculation culminated on Wednesday with Allen parting company with the club he managed for just three games, and the club admitted there had been a "breakdown in the relationship" between Allen and Mandaric - believed to have stemmed from differences of opinion over the signing of veteran striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

"That was my decision to do it, but I do what is the best for the club," Mandaric said of the Allen´s departure. "It´s not the games, it´s not the results, it´s looking at where I am going to be at the end of the season, not where I´m going to be after three games."
