New Leicester City Boss Believes Leicester Can Win The Champions League

Craig Shakespeare maintains his Leicester side can shock world football again and win the Champions League. The Foxes host Sevilla in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday, trailing 2-1 from last month's clash in Spain, in what will be Shakespeare's first game as full-time manager after he was appointed on a deal until the end of the season.

Shakespeare knows a 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium would send the Foxes into the last eight on away goals and, after last season's shock Premier League triumph, said Leicester must believe they can win the competition.

He said “Why not? We are in it, we have to try to be competitive in every game, for me there is no free game in football, you have to try to win every game you go in to and show that determination and competitiveness and we need to show that in abundance tomorrow night. We know the importance of getting that goal. It is going to be a huge task but hopefully with the crowd - and we make a good atmosphere here - we can go through.”

Jamie Vardy's away goal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium gave the Foxes hope after Kasper Schmeichel made a number of saves, including from Joaquin Correa's first-half penalty, to keep them in the tie.
