Leicester fans salute new hero by unveiling banner of Craig Shakespeare
Realising they were facing a battle to overcome Sevilla and keep their Champions League dream alive, the Leicester City fans did their utmost to roar their beloved team on at the King Power on Tuesday evening.
They also produced an enormous motivational aid for the occasion, unveiling a large banner before kickoff that gave a nod to their new manager's illustrious namesake.
With Claudio Ranieri now but a memory, the Foxes fans instead saluted their latest managerial hero courtesy of a huge tableau depicting new boss Craig Shakespeare holding the chain of a giant rottweiler in front of a sign saying "Let slip the dogs of war."
The reference made was inspired by a line from William Shakespeare's Julius Caeser:"Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war"
And the banner definitely worked like an inspirational charm as Leicester subsequently vanquished their Spanish foes 2-0 to secure themselves a berth in the quarterfinals.
