On February 23 of 2017, Claudio Ranieri was sacked from his managerial position in Leicester City as the club was at that point in time located just slightly above the relegation zone.
It was pretty clear that Leicester City was struggling trying to defend the English Premier League title that they had won in the previous season.
Going from being the champions to dropping into the bottom relegation zones, from one season to the other one is a huge difference and that´s what Leicester City has recently been experiencing.
Craig Shakeaspeare would later be appointed as the new manager of Leicester City and 53 year old English manager was able to push the club to the 12th spot.
The 2017-18 season of the English Premier League is scheduled to start on August 11 and Shakeaspeare is doing a notable job in the 2017 summer transfer window as he has added to his team, the likes of: Harry Maguire, Eldin Jakupovic and Vicente Iborra.
“The recruitment department has been doing great work. We have a comprehensive scouting network, a lot of good work behind the scenes.There could be a chance. You look at the players out there, the Premier League is the place to play. It gets harder every year. You saw how many teams reinvested and fortunes spent on transfers. It still shows where the league table is now.” Leicester City´s Craig Shakespeare said as he talked about the Premier League and the recruitment department of his team.
It appears like Craig Shakeaspeare has been doing wise decisions in his 1st transfer window at the helm of Leicester City and the future is looking bright for the English Premier League, even if they aren’t able to replicate another historic season as some time ago, being able to escape the relegation zone and snatch a middle spot of the league is something impressive and supporters of the club are hoping that Shakeaspeare can continue.
