Shakespeare leaves Baggies

Published Add your comment

Craig Shakespeare is expected to be named as Nigel Pearson´s assistant manager at Leicester after leaving his post at West Brom.

Shakespeare, 44, joined Albion nine years ago as a recruitment officer before becoming youth-team coach under then-manager Gary Megson and subsequently reserve-team boss.

Baggies boss Tony Mowbray said: "We are sorry to see Craig leave. He contributed greatly to our success last season but we didn´t want to stand in his way. He feels it is an opportunity to progress his career from being a coach to an assistant manager, and it is a good opportunity for him."
