Leicester Appoint Shakespeare As Permanent Manager

Leicester City has named caretaker manager, Craig Shakespeare as the permanent manager of the foxes until the end of the season.

Under Shakespeare, the defending champions have won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time this season.

The 53-year-old has been on the coaching staff at Leicester for the past seven years, and has been tasked with steadying the ship at the club.

Vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha told the club website: “Craig’s skills as a coach and the high regard in which he is held by everyone the club were well known to us.

“We always knew the team would be in good hands when we asked him to take charge a fortnight ago.

“He has initiated the type of positive response that we hoped change would bring, showing great leadership qualities and composure under considerable pressure to produce two very important results.

“We have asked him to continue to lead the team this season and we are very happy that he has accepted.”
