Leicester City appoint Craig Shakespeare until the end of the season

Petr Cech

The Argentinian, who turned 57 on Monday, has been impressed by the Foxes' revival ahead of their Champions League last-16 second leg on Tuesday.

However, it is also a chance for Sampaoli's own five-time Europa League champions to move closer to their long-cherished goal of proving they are good enough to annex a rather more significant continental trophy.

Both games under Shakespeare have come in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium and both have finished in 3-1 victories for the Foxes.

Craig Shakespeare has stated his only priority and what has his attention is to take Leicester City to safety.

Shakespeare has been of the Foxes' coaching staff for seven of the last eight seasons. Mahrez was back at his dazzling best in the win over Hull City, while Vardy's consolation at the Sanchez Pizjuan has triggered a purple patch.

Little credit was initially afforded to caretaker boss Craig Shakespeare, who had served as Ranieri's assistant throughout his time at the club, for the dramatic and immediate reversal of fortunes.

NY judge David Frey also signed an order of protection against the man, barring any contact with country-turned-pop star Swift. Twenty-nine year old Mohammed Jaffar had been loitering around the popstar's apartment building in Tribeca since December 2016.

"We don't have anxiety", Rami said. The match is an important one for the Blues with the team fighting for relegation in the Premier League and needing a confidence boost to propel them this 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".

"We knew by getting the away goal it gave us a great opportunity. A very good position game and they've got some very good players of which offensively we'll have to be massively aware of".

Even so, Sevilla were so superior in the first game between the two sides that it's hard to see them not getting on the scoresheet in this encounter at the King Power Stadium. "We have asked him to continue to lead the team this season and we are very happy that he has accepted".

Leicester have a near-fully-fit squad to choose from, with only midfielder Nampalys Mendy (knee) unavailable for selection.
