Last quote by Craig Shakespeare

I can understand why the public would perceive that but hopefully I have allayed those fears [and conveyed] that it was pure speculation. There is no foundation to it. We know there's going to be some terrific teams [in the quarter-finals], as there were in the previous round. We're in there on merit. Make no mistake about that.feedback

Craig Shakespeare has most recently been quoted in an article called Atletico Madrid tipped to win the Champions League by Leicester boss Shakespeare. Craig Shakespeare said, “We are disappointed to go out, but I'm immensely proud of the team and I thought we ran an excellent team close and gave them a really good shot at it. The players can be immensely proud of their performance but ultimately they are very disappointed to go out. [My future] is not in my hands, it's in the club's hands and we'll sit down at the end of the season. I'll sit down before then if it arises but my contract is to the end of the season. I've enjoyed it and I've enjoyed the Champions League and pitting my wits against one of the best managers and sides in the world.”. Craig Shakespeare has been quoted a grand total of 55 times in 24 articles.

Craig Shakespeare quotes

It wasn't a penalty. It was a free-kick. It's a really disappointing decision by the referee. He has to get that one right. You can't guess on those ones.feedback

He won't be ready for Wednesday. Once he got injured there was no timeframe but it gives others a chance. It gives opportunities to other people. People have come in and done well. It didn't seem there were any other problems. Atletico Madrid are a very good team with some fantastic individuals with experience in the competition, but we'll be ready to give everything to progress. It will be a brilliant occasion for our supporters and for everyone at the club.feedback

Facing a team who have reached the final in two of the last three seasons is a massive challenge but it's just the kind of tie you expect in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.feedback

There's no chance [of Morgan playing]. He's here and he travelled with the team, but he'll take no part in the game. Wilfred is fine. He trained partly yesterday and he'll take part in the whole session today [Tuesday]. Hopefully he'll come through that okay, which is what we're expecting.feedback

We are very well disciplined as a team, but yes, the players will be reminded about their responsibilities and not to get any stupid cards for things like encroaching. It is something we will talk about with the players. Playing in the Champions League has been a new experience for us but we have enjoyed it. We are there to compete and not make the numbers up. These players have earned their opportunity and we intend to keep that going on Wednesday night.feedback

I am quite comfortable with my own conscience, so I can't do anything about that. Free speech is there for anybody, I don't have a problem with it. [After he left] I spoke to him and he thanked me for my time. I thanked him and there has never been any falling out. It's football and I am glad to see that he is enjoying his football again. My stance is still the same. We never had a falling out. I haven't seen the interview live, but I think I have answered the question.feedback

This time, with Leicester we won the title and the fans, with me, in my heart. I want to thank all the fans.feedback

Leicester will be in my heart for all of my life because I won something in Europe, but never the title. Three times I was runner-up.feedback

The idea is to start out and make sure you are competitive and you know the opposition's strengths and weaknesses. We know it is a difficult task against Everton but we know the players will be ready and up for it. I think it is more a case of what the team has done for Jamie - and I think he would be the first to appreciate that. Confidence in strikers is there for everyone to see. He is in a rich vein of form and we need that to continue. We need to keep supplying him.feedback

Of course, the idea is to win. But if you can't win you make sure you don't lose. I think it would mean more getting the three points rather than records. It is nice and they come with the territory of the games, but more importantly it is about the three points for us as a team. And if we cant manage to get the win then we make sure we don't lose. It would be nice to keep the momentum going with another win. I couldn't have wished for a better start.feedback

It would be a lot to ask him to come back for a game of that magnitude [against Atleti].feedback

[Player recruitment] is a big issue at any club and I think it would be remiss of me not to take an interest in it. How much of an influence I can have you will have to ask the club but I have a real interest.feedback

It will be memorable for everyone at the football club. We might just be the surprise team.feedback

It'll be nice to pit our wits against someone else, we've just knocked out one of the best teams in Europe. Their credentials are there for everyone to see. As a club we can be immensely proud.feedback

The Champions League music ignites everyone and the crowd were terrific. It's only three games and somewhere along the line there might be a hiccup but I'll enjoy tonight.feedback

Why not? We are in it. We have to try and be competitive every game. There is a great opportunity for us [against Sevilla] and we will give it our best shot. We have to compete for the 90 minutes or extra time. We have practiced penalties and we try to leave no stone unturned. By the way the penalties were good. We knew by getting the away goal it gave us a great opportunity. We give ourselves a great chance. It makes it very interesting. It will be a special occasion and the atmosphere will be electric.feedback

We are not going to be open but I want to play on the front foot. Hopefully I will stay calm so the players are not overemotional, but of course I will be excited. We have not spoken since. We will probably be in contact in the future – I have no problem with that.feedback

We've got to put wins on the board to climb the table. We will try to win tomorrow in the #UCL . It's always all about results.feedback

I have said before that, do I think I'm capable of it? Yes. Does it faze me? No.feedback

But I think it is the powers-that-be, the owners, who decide and do their job, it is their diligence to look. I am sure they will do that.feedback

(Ndidi) is young and we don't want to put too much pressure on him. He's a humble boy and reminds a lot of Kante with his personality, . [The] first goal was always going to be crucial and what a goal it was. Ndidi has done that before. He's got that in his locker.feedback

Nice to get the 4th straight @premierleague win, everyone deserves credit. Been tough games, but a pleasure to be involved.feedback

I think it's looking better, definitely. But, again, we have to make sure that we're ready for Sunderland on Tuesday.feedback

I am quite comfortable about that. There is no clause, nothing, only that it is until the end of the season. We have a head of recruitment and a recruitment department. I speak to them regularly because I'm interested in it.feedback

To be mentioned in the same breath as them is unbelievable. I would take great pride in that if it happens but the rewards are secondary in terms of the team and the bigger picture. I would be stupid to say otherwise but it was one I thought the players were capable of. It has been very pleasing for not just me but the players, the staff, the owners and supporters – but we are not safe yet. I am quite open to whenever they want to [hold discussions]. It is stated that the manager's contract is to the end of the season. I don't see any reason to speak before that unless the club want to.feedback
