Puel’s No 2 Ap­ple­ton leaves Le­ices­ter

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

FOOT­BALL: As­sis­tant man­ager Michael Ap­ple­ton has left Le­ices­ter amid a re­struc­tur­ing of Claude Puel’s coach­ing staff.

Ap­ple­ton, former Black­burn and Ox­ford man­ager, joined Le­ices­ter on a three-year con­tract last June as Craig Shake­speare’s No 2.

Shake­speare was sacked in Oc­to­ber after Le­ices­ter’s poor start to the sea­son and Ap­ple­ton briefly took over – win­ning his two matches in charge – be­fore Puel was ap­pointed man­ager at the King Power Sta­dium.
