2001: Leicester appoint Dave Bassett

Dave Bassett became Leicester City manager in October 2001, taking over from Garry Parker.

He spent nearly six months in charge of the Foxes, but was unable to prevent relegation, which was confirmed in a 1-0 away defeat by Manchester United on 6 April.

After that, Bassett became director of football, with assistant manager Micky Adams taking over managerial duties.
