Shakespeare - Leicester Will Move Up The Table

Shakespeare - Leicester Will Move Up The Table

Former manager Craig Shakespeare has now released a statement following his sacking at Leicester City earlier this week.

Our owners seemingly ran out patience with Shakespeare following our start to the season and the decision was taken to part company with him following the one all draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Having lasted four months into the three year deal he signed having replaced Claudio Ranieri last term after his own struggles, Sky Sports have him saying via the League Managers Association.

'I would like to thank the owners and board of Leicester City for giving me the opportunity to manage this fantastic club. My sincere thanks also to the players, who have always been a pleasure to work with. I have every confidence that, given time and once at full strength, this squad will pull away from its current Premier League position, and soon deliver the high levels of performance they have demonstrated over the past three seasons.'

Shakespeare went on to say.

'I have thoroughly enjoyed working with my coaching staff and the staff throughout the club, who I thank for their hard work and support. I will always have such special memories, both on and off the pitch, from my two spells working for Leicester City. Memories which I have shared with the club's outstanding fans. I would like to thank each of them for their support, especially in the past six months as I have made the transition into management. Finally, I'd like to wish Leicester City every success for the future as I move on to the next challenge in my career.'
