Leicester City caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed that he has only held brief talks with the club’s owners regarding the current managerial situation at the club
After Claudio Ranieri’s sacking last week, Shakespeare oversaw the Foxes’ 3-1 dismantling of Liverpool and has been asked to take charge of the game against Hull this weekend.
Shakespeare has indicated that there has been some dialogue with the owners, although he has said that he has been left to prepare the team for the potentially crucial meeting with Hull City this weekend.
He is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: “I’m there to listen to what their wishes are at the moment and I’m very comfortable with how things have gone and what they’ve told me so far,” he said.
“There hasn’t been a lot of dialogue, but I don’t expect there to be because I’m trying to prepare the team for the next match.”
Shakespeare, assistant manager at Leicester since 2011, said he has enjoyed working with the players and is learning on the job.
He said: “I enjoy more than anything the game. That’s the be all and end all. The results are the most important and obviously it was more enjoyable getting the three points on Monday night.”
