Leicester sports scientist sent to stands at Atletico is charged by UEFA

Leicester sports scientist sent to stands at Atletico is charged by UEFA”

'We're still in this tie, the King Power rocking - remember Seville, memories of there - it'll be a really good game, ' said Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare following his side's loss to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.

The Foxes were up against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital in the first leg of the tie when violence erupted in Madrid's Plaza Mayor.

He said: 'I asked the ref about the decision after the game and he said the foul was on the line. "Whether we risk him is something you need to weigh up". "Of course they have their preferred position but there are players within the squad who can utilise different positions and Daniel is one".

Shakespeare said: "I've just told Wes in there that when we get back to the hotel, he's getting his kit on, going to the gym and making sure he does a session".

Leicester City bosses are working with Uefa and the Spanish authorities to discover the "full facts" behind scuffles involving fans in Madrid.

The 33-year-old Jamaica global is doubtful for the second leg as well and with Huth also forced to sit out, Leicester are expected to face a tough time when Atletico visit the King Power Stadium for the second leg next week. It was provoked but it did get a bit tasty so we left.

Griezmann collected the ball outside his own area and ran to just inside the Leicester box before being crudely barged over by Albrighton.

But the 30-year-old was still upset after referee Jonas Eriksson awarded a first-half penalty despite Marc Albrighton fouling Griezmann outside the box.

"Before the game they would have liked more of a cushion going back to Leicester".

Robert Huth also seems certain to start at Selhurst Park, with the German defender suspended for the second leg against Atletico.

Neither man could have imagined that last September when they sat on the bench as England scraped a 1-0 win against Slovakia.

"We know it is bound to be a very hard return match, but we have a very good record at King Power Stadium", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said.

Crystal Palace took another step toward Premier League survival by recovering from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw with Leicester on Saturday.

"We have a very good home record at the King Power". The hosts had three clear opportunities less than 15 minutes into the match, with Koke striking the right post with a long-range shot as early as the fourth minute.
