Phillips excited to be part of Leicester coaching staff

Kevin Phillips is excited to be part of Leicester City's coaching staff.

The 40-year-old retired from playing at the end of the season, but he has been offered his first role as a coach by manager Nigel Pearson.

"Coming into a different changing room will be a weird feeling," Phillips told the Leicester Mercury.

"Coming in earlier and leaving later is something else I will have to get used to.

"It will be weird but it is something I want to do. I know that just because I have played for 20 years doesn't guarantee me starting at the top.

"But what a great opportunity for me to have my first coaching role with a Premier League team."
