Leicester City has appointed Craig Shakespeare as manager until the end of the season.

Shakespeare has been in charge of the Foxes since Claudio Ranieri was sacked nine months father winning the Premier League trophy.

The 53-year-old, who has been at the club since 2008, has been given the task of steering City to survival between now and the summer.

Shakespeare proved his worth by leading the Foxes to consecutive victories over Liverpool and Hull in his first two matches as gaffer.

Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, the vice chairman of Leicester City, told the club’s website that, “Craig’s skills as a coach and the high regard in which he is held by everyone the club were well known to us”.

“We always knew the team would be in good hands when we asked him to take charge a fortnight ago.

“He has initiated the type of positive response that we hoped change would bring, showing great leadership qualities and composure under considerable pressure to produce two very important results.

“We have asked him to continue to lead the team this season and we are very happy that he has accepted.”

The Foxes are three points clear of the relegation zone in 15th place.

Shakespeare’s first task as permanent coach is Tuesday’s Champions League game against Sevilla.

The Spanish side won the first leg 2-1.
