Foxes of Leicester comment as a former Leicester City player lands a shock managerial role. In addition to that, FoL report on one Foxes star suffering a knock. Meanwhile another prominent Fox aims to continue LCFC's celebrations versus Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Following Foxes festivities over the last week or so, Leicester get back down to business once again this weekend. Blackburn are the latest unfortunate team to travel to Leicestershire for a fixture. The match kicks off at 12:30pm BST at King Power Stadium. So, hopefully the LCFC squad have stopped partying and get an early night on Friday.

In all seriousness, the players have earned the right to party, and fair play to them for enjoying themselves after a long season. However, goalkeeper Mads Hermansen has said that the Championship champions are determined for celebrations to carry on against Rovers on Saturday.

The Dane was quoted as saying that the Leicester collective wish to reach the 100 points mark. Furthermore, Hermansen added that the team wishes to enjoy the game - and produce another victory. Don't forget, LCFC fans, that the trophy lift also happens after the final whistle.

Unfortunately Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall won't feature versus John Eustace's men at the King Power. The midfield general isn't expected to be out for long, with the issue described as minor. Obviously the east Midlanders have already attained promotion and are the English second division title-winners again, so there isn't much to play for. But Dewsbury-Hall will always be missed in the middle of the park.

Head coach Enzo Maresca is looking forward to festivity on Filbert Way, too. The Italian is still trying to come to terms with what they have actually achieved this season, as you can read here.

One-time Leicester City man Noberto Solano in new job

Former Foxes favourite Noberto Solano has been appointed the boss of sixth-tier club Blyth Spartans. So the Peruvian has some way to go before he is challenging Pep Guardiola, Mikel Arteta and now Premier League head coach Maresca. Of course, you have to start somewhere!

FoL certainly wish the 49-year-old well in his fresh endeavour. He also famously played for Newcastle United as well as Aston Villa in the top-flight. Solano was indeed one of those professionals who appeared to thoroughly relish the amazing opportunity in his hands - or at his feet - being a footballer. A smile regularly adorned his face.
