One football language phrase in the news this week is new manager bounce. This phrase refers to the feeling that when a club sacks a manager after some poor form, the team bounces back, does well, under a new manager or coach. This week, as we’ve heard, Leicester City sacked their manager, Claudio Ranieri and now have Craig Shakespeare in temporary charge. Will they get a new manager bounce when they play Liverpool next?
- Example: Leicester City enjoyed a new manager bounce when they defeated Liverpool 3-0 this week.
