Still a bit to be done before a name is confirmed with Dean Smith and Rafael Benitez both seen as possible winners in a race that looks very strange, but we believe that a Craig Shakespeare return is on, as he could be the link of continuity if the club decides to make a temporary appointment.
Dean Smith knows that keeping Leicester up will give him every opportunity to continue, with Craig Shakespeare it will be different as his deal looks done and settled long term.
Early on and just hours after Brendan Rodgers had been sacked, reports about Craig Shakespeare were seen and he was guessed to be a temporary appointment, but in all the experienced football man of Leicester past might have looked at a possibilty to rejoin on a longer and more permanent contract.
Craig Shakespeare will hopefully be the important link to keep continuity, as he could see his role at Leicester on longer terms. He could keep continuity over the summer if the act of appointing Dean Smith in temporary charge will see the club relegated.
The problem and key at this moment is to have two thoughts in your mind at the same time, and not lose momentum and focus as the situation of the future is assessed along the way.
Craig Shakespeare could be the likely key to achieve stability even with a relegation happening.
Leicester could in the summer be looking at a number of possible solutions and to have someone with the experience of Shakespeare around would of course be of importance.
