Burnley boss Sean Dyche denies link to Leicester job

While Shakespeare's No.2 Michael Appleton is in charge for the Foxes' match at Swansea, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti are among those being linked to the King Power Stadium. Having spoken to the players today, they are obviously a bit raw as you can imagine.

Asked if there might be a way for a representative of the first-team squad to speak to the board to get answers, Appleton said: "I'm sure they will".

However, just four months later, Shakespeare finds himself out of work after winning just one League game this season, and leaves the club in the relegation zone once again.

Srivaddhanaprabha said in a statement on the club's website: "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".

The Foxes sacked Craig Shakespeare on Tuesday after a poor run of results, and are now on the lookout for a new manager to take them forwards. The 41-year-old described Shakespeare as "clearly shocked" to lose his job, and said he personally has not been given any timescale for how long the club want him to act in a caretaker capacity.

Wales manager Chris Coleman and Burnley boss Sean Dyche are among the contenders to replace Shakespeare.


"My full focus is making sure I try and pick the right side on Saturday and hopefully with a little bit of luck and quality we can go and win the game". I have been flattered.

But the 2015-16 champions have struggled this season and are third from bottom of the table with a single league win.

"I don't believe there is unrest".

Three successive victories across all competitions at the start of his reign effectively secured Shakespeare the job until the end of the season.

"It's a good dressing room".

"These players want to win games, they want to win games of football for their manager, and if what's happened over the last couple of days is the motivation that they need to get the three points, then great".
