Leicester match 'a historic opportunity for everyone' at Sevilla - Sampaoli

Posted March 14, 2017

Leicester sacked coach Claudio Ranieri, the man that led them to Premier League glory last season, shortly after the game in Seville and appointed Craig Shakespeare as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Despite considering the match as a complicated encounter, Shakespeare believes that his team has a great opportunity against Sevilla at Leicester's King Power stadium, as a step towards winning the UEFA Champions League, which he considers possible, reports Efe. They may not have been at their best at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for the first leg, but they picked up a crucial goal and have made noticeable improvements in the weeks since.

Leicester produced a stirring display in Shakespeare's first game, Jamie Vardy scoring twice in a 3-1 home win over Liverpool, and came from behind to beat Hull City 3-1 on their last outing.

New Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare says he is "not looking beyond this season" despite being backed by his players to get the job longer term.

"We're definitely still in it, we'll look forward to the next leg and hopefully we can get through".

Shakespeare, 53, was Ranieri's assistant last season after being brought to the club by the Italian's predecessor, Nigel Pearson.
