Emile Heskey

Leicester City has hired Foxes legend Emile Heskey in an ambassadorial role that will see him support the development of the women’s game.

Heskey, who came through the Academy at Leicester City and went on to represent the Club in the Premier League and win 62 caps for England, will become a key figure in the transition of LCFC Women to a full-time professional team.

The appointment comes after King Power International boiught LCWFC – a move that marked the 10-year anniversary of King Power’s Leicester City takeover.

Heskey said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be back working for Leicester City. Everybody knows how I feel about this Football Club and to be able to have the opportunity to work on such an exciting project from its inception is fantastic.

“I’m looking forward to getting started with some great people and I hope that my experience, input and ideas can help Leicester City Women transition to the next level.”
