Premier League club Leicester City have explained why coach Craig Shakespeare was sacked.

Leicester City Footballh its First Team Manager, Craig Shakespeare,” the 2015/2016 English champions announced hours after media outlets broke the news.

Leicester City Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said “Our early promise under Craig’s management has not been consistently evident in the months since and the Board feels that, regrettably, a change is necessary to keep the Club moving forward – consistent with the long-term expectations of our supporters, Board and owners”.

He observed that “Craig had been a great servant to Leicester City – during his spells as an Assistant Manager and since taking over as Manager in challenging circumstances in February. His dedication to the Club and to his work has been absolute and the contribution he made to the most successful period in Leicester City history is considerable”.

Leicester added that they “will now begin the process of identifying and appointing its next First Team Manager and will make no further comment on the process until the appropriate time.”

Michael Appleton will be in charge of the First Team as Caretaker Manager for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Swansea City, supported by First Team Coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler.

Shakespeare took over from Claudio Ranieri, who led the club to a fairytale totle win in 2016, and steered Leicester to safety but they have struggled this season.
