Shakespeare says Leicester turn around down to ‘hard work’

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare was happy after his team pulled off their first away win of the season at West Ham on Saturday, and said it was all down to hard work.

The Foxes won their first Premier League away fixture of the season with a 3-2 victory at West Ham.

Riyad Mahrez, Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy got the goals as Leicester displayed no signs of a European hangover following their impressive performance over Sevilla.

Speaking after the game, Shakespeare said that the sudden upturn in Leicester’s form was simple.

“There is no secret, just hard work, endeavour and resilience, and we showed that today,” he said.

“We said once the Champions League draw was made let’s concentrate on the Premier League. It’s been put to one side, we’ve parked it.

“We knew we were coming here on the back of an awful away record and we wanted to put it right.”

Leicester have won all four games under Shakespeare, including making it into the Champions League quarterfinals, since sacking title-winning boss Claudio Ranieri last month.
