The pair of Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell are both experienced men in the Leicester City dressing room. They have been in charge as caretakers before and took on the role together also when Claude Puel left four years ago.

Sadler and Stowell are loyal men and been part of the Leicester establishment for a long time. Stowell joined the club as far back as 2005, almost 18 years ago. Sadler joined the club in 2014, and has worked under Nigel Pearson, Claudio Ranieri, Craig Shakespeare, Claude Puel and Brendan Rodgers

Stowell probably had no idea he would have stayed on at the club for so long when he got sacked together with Rob Kelly back in 2007, but was reappointed as goalkeeper coach just weeks after his dismissal. From that day on, he has been a faitful and loyal man to the club.

Mike Stowell is used to long relationships at football clubs, being a grand servant and seen as a goalkeeper legend at Wolverhampton Wanderers, playing at Molinuex from 1989 to 2001, appearing 385 times in league action for Wolves.

Adam Sadler also a former goalkeeper in play for Gretna and Blyth Spartans, started his football coaching life at the age of 21, being handed a chance by Newcastle, and from there moving on to Norwich, Plymouth, Man Utd, Barnsley and Man City in different capacities before taking on a role at Ukrainian club Tavriya Simferopol.

He joined Leicester in 2014 as a tactical analyst under Nigel Pearson, and was later appointed first team coach by Claude Puel, and has been in and around the first team during the years of Brendan Rodgers.

Sadler is currently also in a role as Northern ireland assistant manager, being in this position since 2021.

Sadler and Stowell will be back in charge vs. Aston Villa to try to keep their unbeaten run floating, hopefully making a copy of the last game in charge, bringing home a 2-1 home win vs. Brighton. Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy scored the two goals for Leicester on the day.

Eleven of the players, either playing from start or being named on the bench that day against Brighton, are still with the club.
