Leicester are 2-1 down going into tomorrow’s home Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Sevilla, but new Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare thinks his side still have a chance of winning the competition outright.
Shakespeare says Leicester City’s away goal makes tomorrow’s home leg against Sevilla interesting.
“We knew by getting the away goal it gave us a great opportunity,” said Shakespeare. “It’ll be a special occasion and the atmosphere will be electric. We’re not going to be open but I want to play on the front foot.
“I’m quite calm and collected. Hopefully, I’ll stay calm so the players aren’t overemotional. Of course, I’ll be excited. We have to compete for the 90 minutes or extra-time. I didn’t see the Barcelona game (versus Paris St-Germain) but I saw the result.”
Sevilla won 2-1 in the first leg, with Jamie Vardy scoring for the Foxes in Claudio Ranieri’s last game as the club’s manager.
When asked about not mentioning Claudio Ranieri, he said:
It was a short but sweet answer when Craig Shakespeare was asked if there had been any contact since his departure.
“We haven’t spoken since. We’ll probably be in contact in future. I have no problem with that.”
