Shakespeare's assistant Michael Appleton will take charge of Leicester for Saturday's trip to Swansea City.

The Foxes sacked Craig Shakespeare on Tuesday after a poor run of results, and are now on the lookout for a new manager to take them forwards.

Leicester, Premier League champions in 2015-16, are third bottom of the table after failing to win in their past six games.

"I think the initial feeling was of surprise, but having spoken to (the players) today they are obviously still raw", Appleton told a news conference on Thursday.

"My honest thanks to the players, who have always been a pleasure to work with", Shakespeare said in a statement to the League Managers Association. I didn't release Craig and I'm not sure of the reasons why.

Sean Dyche, who is also interested, is among the front-runners but would cost £2.5million to prise out of Burnley, while David Wagner is a contender but it may be hard to convince the German to leave Huddersfield.

Dyche said it is "no story", adding: "I'm not aware of any approach. I fully expect to come in tomorrow and have a mindset that is focused simply on what is needed for Saturday".

While some people travelled out of the city to buy the polluting agents, others said they used leftovers from last year's stash. For instance, pollution levels touched hazardous levels - PM10 at 1,179 and PM2.5 at 878 - at RK Puram around 11 pm on Thursday.

Dutchman Guus Hiddink and Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti have been linked with the job, but despite Ranieri's incredible title success, Appleton hopes another homegrown manager gets the job.

"In a way you're flattered by these links because it's some form of recognition".

Reacting to Tuesday's development, former Leicester and England player Gary Lineker tweeted: "Was always a miracle, but it's even more remarkable really that Leicester won the league given the ineptitude of those that run the club".

"I don't believe there is unrest".

Burnley are seventh in the standings and a return of 13 points from eight matches represents their best start to a Premier League season.

"It's a good dressing room".
