Craig Shakespeare Confident Leicester City Can Hold On To Star Players Despite Lack Of European Football

share on:

Leicester city boss Craig Shakespeare believes he can hold on to his stars players, despite no European football next season.

The 53-year-old insists his squad are happy at Leicester city despite their reign as Premier League champions coming to an end.

“We have said before we don’t want to be a selling club,” he said. “All the players are happy here. They are a very unique group, we have created something here which is quite special, so they have said they are quite happy.

“It’s again one of those things. I have no problems with players being ambitious but they are at a good club here and get looked after well. I’m sure the time will come to sit down.

“We will probably have agents knocking on the door but we’ve said before we don’t want to be a selling club and we want to add to that.”

Craig Shakespeare’s future is also yet to be decided with his short-term contract as manager expiring at the end of the season.

“I’m sure the owners and the board are aware of that,” said Shakespeare, who has won six of his 10 games in charge.

“I am in charge of pre-season. We are looking at that. I have had one meeting about recruitment, which I really enjoyed.

“Any time the club wishes to talk about recruitment or pre-season, of course I have an interest in it. Pre-season is sorted, so any things like that, that involves me, I am happy to be involved.”
