"There was talk from the manager and the players that they are delighted to bring them back to the King Power."
"He's a complete player, you don't even know his position anymore, he's all over the pitch".

Cape Town - Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin believes Leicester forward Jamie Vardy has what it takes to play for most clubs in the world, including Diego Simeone's side.

A raucous atmosphere and a performance of relentless intensity saw Leicester turn a 2-1 deficit against Sevilla into a 3-2 aggregate win in the previous round and left-back Christian Fuchs is relishing trying to make life hard for another LaLiga opponent.

Leicester City faced a UEFA fine for "improper conduct" by a coaching staff during their Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid.

"The conversation will be with Wes and our medical department and we'll give him every opportunity between now and then but if he's not ready we won't take a gamble", Shakespeare said. There is some hope with Morgan, though.

Leicester winger Marc Albrighton insists referee Jonas Eriksson got his crucial penalty decision in their Champions League quarter-final in Madrid wrong.

Shakespeare added: "If I think it's a benefit [he could play there]".

The French global put his previous penalty demons behind him to convert from the spot and put Atletico in the driving seat for a third semi-final in four seasons. "We know what we've got to do". "I don't care how much experience they have".

Shakespeare said that the onus is now on Leicester to be more attacking in next week's second leg.

Quite expectedly, Leicester were on the back foot from the off on Wednesday night against Atletico, but they remained resolute in defense.

Former Leicester great Gary Lineker - not exactly an impartial observer on this occasion, admittedly - was quick to criticise the Swedish referee. "We want to make sure there is no reaction to today's training".
