Craig Shakespeare's short reign as Leicester City manager was brought to an end on Tuesday when the Premier League club confirmed he had been sacked after four months in permanent charge. The 53-year-old, assistant manager to Claudio Ranieri when Leicester stunned the sporting world to win the 2015-16 Premier League title, assumed a caretaker role in February after Italian Ranieri was sacked with the club in the relegation zone. Shakespeare inspired a quick turnaround in fortunes, leading the club to safety and into the quarter-finals of the Champions League and was rewarded with the permanent job in June.
Real Madrid are likely to try to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane so they can continue their current cycle at the summit of European football, the club's former president Ramon Calderon said on Tuesday. Kane, 24, has scored 13 times in his past nine matches for club and country and has been the focus of heavy media attention before Tuesday's blockbuster Champions League clash between Spurs and Real Madrid. Real have been crowned champions of Europe three times in the past four years while slowly stepping away from their model of signing global stars, which current president Florentino Perez famously termed Galacticos, each summer.
