Chris Powell hopes Leicester win title, talks on Spurs dilemma

Former Leicester City player Chris Powell says that he hopes the Foxes can win the Premier League title - even though he is a Tottenham Hotspur fan.


Chris Powell has said on Soccer AM, broadcast on March 5 at 10am, that he is torn on who he wants to win this season's Premier League title.


The 46-year-old ended his playing days with Leicester between 2008 and 2010, making 26 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes before announcing his retirement.


Powell also began his coaching career at the King Power Stadium, serving under Nigel Pearson, Paulo Sousa and Sven-Goran Eriksson before moving into management with Charlton Athletic.


However, Powell has also revealed that he is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter, and with the clubs currently occupying the top-two positions in the standings, it has left the former left-back with a dilemma.


Powell said: "It is a phenomenal story. I think it is a great story and I think it is great for Leicester, but will they win it, I really don't know

"From Nigel Pearson to Claudio carrying it on, I'd love them to do it - even though I am a Spurs fan!

"I love Leicester, I love the time I had there, I finished my career there and started coaching and managing there, but we'll see!"

Spurs could move to the top of the table on goal difference if they beat Arsenal in the lunchtime kick-off at White Hart Lane.

However, Leicester will ensure that they remain in first place if they can earn at least a draw in their away fixture at Watford on Saturday evening.

Powell is currently out of work after being removed from his position as Huddersfield Town boss earlier this season after 57 games in charge of the Yorkshire club.
