Leicester City Women’s manager Jonathan Morgan has departed the club along with his assistant Michael Makoni and coach Holly Morgan.

All three played an important role in the development of the Foxes but the club felt a change in leadership was now necessary to give the team – who are yet to register a point – the best possible chance of retaining their WSL status.

Jonathan Morgan told lcfc.com: “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.”

Head of Women’s Football Development Emile Heskey will oversee training until the appointment of a new manager.
