Micky Adams has confirmed that he is to stay at Leicester, despite the controversy that has seen three of his players held in a Spanish prison on charges of sexual aggression.

Captain Paul Dickov, Keith Gillespie and Frank Sinclair have been remanded in custody in Spain since Friday following the alllegations.

Meanwhile, Adams has spoken for the first time about the situation.

“Firstly, I would like to make it clear that I am continuing as manager of Leicester City,’ he said.

“But it is true to say that I have thought long and hard about my situation because of recent events.”

“I am determined to see the job through and do my very best for the club.

“Without wishing to pre-judge the criminal investigations and our own club investigation, I am deeply concerned about the actions of a minority of my players.

“I have spoken to them on many occasions about the need to conduct themselves properly on and off the pitch at all times.

“I have held a staff meeting at the training ground this morning to tell them all what I expect of them.”

“The board of directors of the club will be heading up a full internal investigation, which has my full support.

“I would like to thank those fans who have pledged their support to myself personally and to the club in general.

“A great many people pulled together to save this club just over a year ago and, right now, all off those people have every right to feel let down.

“It is the responsibility of the players and myself to do everything possible to restore their pride in this football club once again.”
