Rest works for Shakespeare

16 Oct 2009 - 12:11:45

Leicester City assistant manager Craig Shakespeare believes that the Foxes squad have benefited from a few days off during the international break.

The City players are preparing for a derby clash with Derby County and Shakespeare is happy with the way training is going.

He told The Mercury: "When you are going along quite nicely you are unsure if a break does you any good or not.

"However, we had six or seven games in a relatively short space of time and it was a chance to get the players away from the training ground, have a change of atmosphere and give them a bit of a break with their families.

"It was a chance to recharge the batteries and they looked refreshed. There was a different impetus to them.

"The training this week has been excellent. The tempo has been first-class and we have got the balance between the rest and the work."
