Midfielder Andy King hopes the manager Leicester City appoint as Sven Goran Eriksson's successor will be a long-term fixture at the club.
King, who came through the youth ranks with the Foxes, has seen 12 bosses come and go since joining as a teenager in 2004.
Eriksson was the most recent departure after he was shown the door by Leicester's Thai owners early last week.
The Championship side are expected to have appointed a new manager in time for their visit of Leeds next weekend.
King, who scored both goals in the Foxes' 3-2 defeat at West Ham on Saturday, hopes Eriksson's successor will have a long future at the King Power Stadium.
He told the Daily Mirror: "I've been here a long time and seen a lot of managers, each with their own tactics and styles.
"Hopefully the man they bring in will do a good job here and have a long future because if that happens it means the team is doing well."
Saturday's defeat by the Hammers left promotion hopefuls Leicester 14th in the table but King believes they showed glimpses of their potential at Upton Park.
"There is massive potential here," he added. "We have got a squad of outstanding players - we have shown that second half.
"Everyone knows we have showed it for halves but maybe not for a full game and it's about time we did that for 90 minutes.
"It's just small things and little changes. We are not a million miles away from where we need to be so the quicker we can turn that around the quicker we can start climbing the table."
