Women’s Football Heskey takes temporary charge of Leicester Women as Morgan leaves

EMILE HESKEY has taken temporary charge of Leicester Women following the departure of Jonathan Morgan, it was announced today.

Leicester sit bottom of the Women’s Super League table having lost all eight of their matches so far this season.

Morgan, who led the Foxes to promotion from the Championship in April, assistant manager Michael Makoni and first team coach Holly Morgan have all left the club.

A statement from Leicester read: “Retention of its FA Women’s Super League status is central to the club’s vision for the long-term development of women’s football in the city.

“The club feels a change in leadership is now necessary to give the team the best possible chance of achieving this in the remaining months of the season.”

Former Leicester City striker Heskey is the club’s head of women’s football development and he will oversee preparations for the Continental Cup clash against Manchester United on December 5 while the search for a new manager begins.
