Danny Drinkwater has called – on behalf of all the Leicester players -for the long-term appointment of Craig Shakespeare as manager.
“On behalf of all the players, I think all of us would like to see him get the job long term,” said Drinkwater. “It’s a great appointment. It’s a good fit. We haven’t got much time to turn things around but there’s no better person for the job
“I don’t think it’s changed an awful lot. He needs to take control more as manager and any changes he’s made have been positive for the players.
“He’s been a pleasure to work with as manager – but he’s taken different roles as a coach. He helps us enjoy the football. It’s not only for the players and manager but one of the biggest games in the club’s history.”
Leicester City have put Craig Shakespeare, who has spent seven of the past eight years on the club’s coaching staff, in charge until the end of the season, after he previously worked under sacked manager Claudio Ranieri at the King Power Stadium.
