Steve Cooper: Brings in four assistants to Leicester 

Steve Cooper has confirmed his new backroom staff at Leicester City, with a quartet of Alan Tate, Andrew Hughes, Danny Alcock and Steve Rands joining him at the King Power Stadium.

Former Head Coach Enzo Maresca took six staff with him when he moved from Leicester to Chelsea last month, leaving Cooper with several holes to fill.

Cooper's Assistant will be Alan Tate, who worked alongside him at both Swansea City and Nottingham Forest. So too did Steve Rands, who comes in as First Team Coach and Analyst.

Rands is a pioneer of the coach-analyst hybrid role and worked at Barnsley, Scunthorpe, Manchester City and Derby County before teaming up with Cooper at Swansea.

Danny Alcock comes in as Goalkeeper Coach, having worked with Cooper, Tate and Rands at Forest. Alcock coached at Academy level with Stoke and England before joining Forest in 2021.
