Craig Shakespeare, Leicester City‘s assistant manager, is working two jobs.

On Wednesday, Shakespeare was appointed as a first-team coach for England in a part-time role, joining Sam Allardyce’s coaching staff while remaining “entirely committed” to Leicester.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to be asked to work with the England team and I’m grateful to both the FA and Leicester City for finding a solution that works for everybody,” Shakespeare said.

“I’m entirely committed to my role at Leicester and to helping the club build on its recent success. To have the opportunity to do that while also trying to help move the England team forward is a really exciting prospect.”

Shakespeare, who will work alongside Allardyce during international windows after completing his UEFA Pro License this summer, is in the midst of his second spell at Leicester. He first joined the Foxes in 2008 and returned to the club after a one-year stay at Hull City.

England kicks off its 2018 World Cup qualifying adventure on Sept. 4 away to Slovakia.
