Interim Leicester City manager Jennifer Foster has confirmed she will not manage the Women’s Super League side next season.

Foster took charge in March when Willie Kirk – later sacked by the club – was suspended following an investigation into an allegation he had a relationship with a player.

She has managed eight games, but said Saturday’s season-ending match against Liverpool will be her last in charge.

“The club are in the process of hiring a new manager and the process is coming towards the final stages, which is great,” Foster told a news conference.

“The manager they’re looking for is obviously one with ambition, which I’m really excited to work with. I’ve loved it [being interin manager] but I’m really excited to work with the new manager that comes in.”

Leicester’s only win under Foster came in her first game in charge – a 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Liverpool.

The Foxes have lost five and drawn their other two games under Foster, who said her side are a “little disappointed” with results but hope this season can be a “building block”.

Leicester are 10th in the WSL, having won just four of their 21 games, however they did reach the FA Cup semi-finals this season for the first time.

“I have had a huge amount of pride leading this team for the last couple of months,” she added.

“It hasn’t been without its challenges but I think we’ve been really unfortunate with some of the results, and the really pleasing thing for me is that we’ve had the performances.”
