Craig Shakespeare: "Me and Ranieri never fell out"

The Foxes are in Madrid for their Champions League quarter-final clash against former finalists Atletico Madrid tomorrow night.

Kante initially preferred Marseille move over Leicester

Chelsea's midfield dynamo N'Golo Kante has won plaudits for his all-action style which seems set to help him land Premier League titles in successive seasons - but he has admitted that he almost never joined Leicester City.

Kante left Caen in the summer of 2015 and signed for the Foxes for £5.6 million, playing a huge role in their incredible run to the title.

One year after joining, he was off again, this time for £32 million to Chelsea who currently sit top with 10 games to play, again with Kante playing a pivotal role in the centre of the park.

But while on international duty with France last week, Kante has allowed that Marseille were also interested in signing him from Caen - and that his initial instinct was to take another step up the Ligue 1 chain before moving abroad.

Speaking to Canal Plus, Kante has also suggested that there are more deserving players than he of the Player of the Year award, including several team-mates at Chelsea.

Among the clubs that most wanted to recruit me were Marseille and Leicester.

I thought I had to go through a stage in France. I remember the generation of [Mamadou] Niang, [Franck] Ribery and [Samir] Nasri and it was a team that I liked, especially in the Champions League.

There are quite a few players in the Premier League who deserve this [Player of the Year] award.

There is [Eden] Hazard, Diego Costa and David Luiz in my team.

Leicester fans 'confident' after Champions League quarter final draw

Leicester City fans say they are 'confident' ahead of the quarter finals of the Champions League after drawing Spanish side Atletico Madrid.

It is after they overcame Sevilla in the last 16 with a 3-2 aggregate win.

Despite losing a UEFA Cup tie against Atletico when the sides last met in 1997, these Foxes supporters feel it is a winnable tie, after avoiding the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
