Following the news the bid for Leicester City Football Club by Milan Mandaric is to be put before shareholders prior to the match with Preston on Saturday the Foxes Trust are urgently seeking reassurances from Mr Mandaric on a number of key issues.

Foxes Trust Ian Bason commented "When the club came out of administration back in 2003 former Chairman Jon Holmes acknowledged the role played by supporters in saving the club & the importance of supporter representation at the highest level within the club. As a result the Trust holds an Observer role at all club Board meetings."
Bason continued "Should Mr Mandaric's bid be successful the Trust urge him to, at the very least, continue to uphold this important commitment to the supporters of Leicester City. It is vital for the supporters at any club to have confidence in people running their football club. In recent months the Trust has held discussions with club Chairman Andrew Taylor with a view to facilitating a full Director position on the Board of Leicester City Football Club. We sincerely hope that similar discussions can be held with any new owners of the club at the earliest opportunity….
