Michael Appleton leaves role as Leicester City assistant manager

Leicester City confirm that assistant manager Michael Appleton has left the role amid a restructure of Claude Puel's coaching staff.

Michael Appleton has left his position as assistant manager at Leicester City amid a restructure of Claude Puel's coaching staff.

Appleton joined the Foxes as Craig Shakespeare's assistant last June before continuing the role under the former Southampton boss.

Jacques Bonnevay, most recently part of the Japan coaching setup, has now taken on the position ahead of the new Premier League season.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Michael Appleton for everything he has done to help me during his time with the club," Puel told the club's official website.

"He's a good man, a strong character and an excellent coach with the leadership qualities to continue building a successful career. We all wish him well in his future career."

The restructuring of the Leicester backroom team has seen further arrivals in Pascal Planque, Mike Stowell and new first-team coach Adam Sadler.
