⚽ Leicester vice-chairman Aiyawatt: Shakespeare deserves chance ⚽



Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha says Craig Shakespeare is the right choice as interim manager.


The Premier League champions have confirmed that Shakespeare has been given the job until the end of the season.


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


“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.”
