Shakespeare Not Focused On Coaching Leicester Next Season

What: Leicester City hosts Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg. "How you treat people and talk to people is important", he said. However, Jamie Vardy snatched a vital away strike with the clock ticking down, leaving the tie on a knife edge. However, the Italian's departure looks to have galvanised the squad, with two home wins picked up from their last two outings.

Sampaoli does not believe their narrow advantage from the first leg will be enough to see them through. 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. They famously failed to win away in La Liga last season, whilst they've also had a couple of poor results on their travels this time around, losing at Granada and only drawing at Gijon, both of whom are now in the bottom-three, whilst they've also lost at Bilbao and Espanyol.

However, when the Foxes then followed that win up with another 3-1 home victory, this time in a huge clash with fellow relegation battlers Hull City, the balance seemingly started to tip away from Ranieri. "We were all very happy to see him get it short term, I'm sure it would be the same reaction longer term", the England worldwide said. We have practiced penalties and we try to leave no stone unturned.

Dani Parejo, Samir Nasri, Gabriel Mercado and Vitolo did not feature in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Leganes but are expected to return to the starting XI against Leicester.
