Sven Goran Eriksson's managerial career took another twist on Tuesday when the former England manager left his position as Leicester City boss by mutual consent.

The 63-year-old was appointed as Foxes manager in October 2010 and led the club from the relegation zone to a respectable 10th placed finish.

However, after winning only five of 13 league games this season, Eriksson paid the price for an inconsistent start and parted company following his side's 3-0 loss to Millwall.

"The club and its board of directors would like to thank Sven and Derek for the contribution they have made to Leicester City during their 13 months at King Power Stadium," a statement on Leicester's web site said.

"The process for recruiting a new permanent manager will begin in the coming days.

"There will be no further comments from the club or any comment on the recruitment process until an appointment is made."
