Leicester City administrator Craig Shakespeare said he “has never had any dropping out” with previous director Claudio Ranieri.
Ranieri was sacked by the Premier League champions in February and said on Monday night that “somebody behind” him may have been conflicting with him.
Shakespeare stated: “We have never had any contentions or hard emotions.
“Free discourse is there for everyone. I don’t have any issue with that. I have an unmistakable heart.”

Talking on Sky Sports on Monday, Ranieri implied at issues with someone at Leicester, yet declined to name anybody, leaving Shakespeare to face inquiries in the development to Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-last with Atletico Madrid.
Ranieri stated: “I would prefer not to state it’s identity. I am a faithful man. What I needed to state, I said up close and personal.”
Shakespeare, who did not see the meeting live, said that he had talked with Ranieri on the day the Italian was sacked and trusted their relationship was great.
“Claudio was in pleasantness, he went over precisely as I probably am aware him,” Shakespeare said.
“My position is the same from my first meeting [as manager] when I expressed that I’d addressed Claudio the night he was calmed, he said thanks to me for my time, and I expressed gratitude toward him.
“He said it was football. It regarded see him making the most of his football and he went over truly well.”

I did an 18-month pro-licence course with Craig Shakespeare. He’s a fantastic person and when people say “could he have been the one who stabbed Claudio Ranieri in the back?”, I can put my life on the fact it would not have been Craig Shakespeare.
He’s someone you would want by your side at any moment. He has galvanised this Leicester side and, really, the owners’ decision to appoint him has been vindicated.
‘Games like this give you a tingle’
Leicester won their first five league games under Shakespeare before losing at Everton on Sunday but start as underdogs against an Atletico side who have reached the Champions League final in two of the past three seasons.
Captain Wes Morgan has travelled with the squad but is not fit to start as the Foxes look to cause the latest upset in a remarkable couple of seasons.
“These are the nights that drive you on,” said Shakespeare.
“When you look at where the club has come from, to walk through a stadium like this, a lovely traditional ground filled with cups and trophies, it gives you a tingle.”
