English Premier League legendary goalkeeper now turned pundit Peter Schmeichel has revealed that sacked Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare wasn’t responsible for the signing of Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City.
Iheanacho joined The Foxes from Manchester City in the summer for a fee which could potentially rise to £30m, but he is yet to hit the same height which made him a feared striker in the English top division.
The manager who signed him Craig Shakespeare has been sacked by the club according to several sources in England following the club poor run of form that has seen them win just one game this season.
Shakespeare has been criticised over his failure to bring out the best in new signings like Iheanacho, but according to Schmeichel, the manager wasn’t the one who handled the recruitment of players in the summer.
” You can’t fault Shakespeare on the failure of the players signed in the summer. He didn’t sign them, they (Leicester) have a Director of Football who identifies players and sign them”, Schmeichel said on Skysports while speaking on the reported sack of the coach.
