​Shakespeare backs Leicester striker Vardy over Nasri 'cheat' allegations

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare has defender striker Jamie Vardy after Sevilla midfielder Samir Nasri called him a "cheat" for his involvement in the incident that led to the Frenchman's red card in the Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.

"Jamie's not a cheat. Never has been and never will be. Jamie responded well to the comment and we have to put it to bed," said Shakespeare.
