The Leicester City manager Micky Adams has slammed the idea that there is nothing he can do in the remainder of this season with a team that is already relegated.

The new Leicester boss took over on Monday and picks the Foxes side for the first time when Everton visit Filbert Street.

Adams is determined to start working on Leicester's escape from the Nationwide League before the summer starts so he can make an impression on the Foxes squad before the current campaign ends.

He said: "The work starts now. The one thing I have to do in these four weeks is to try to stamp my personality on the job. It is fair to say I am a positive person and ambitious.

"It is a wonderful opportunity. The facilities are right and I will have more opportunities here than at other clubs.

"I am inexperienced and there are things I have to learn, and hopefully can learn.

"I am not the finished article by any means. I am going to make mistakes and there are things I can improve on."

One priority for Adams' in his new job is to appoint an assistant manager.

"I have talked to three or four people I know, " said the former Brighton boss. "I would know who it is by end of May and he would be ready to start on July 1.

"It has been slightly strange this week. I have not got a number two so I have been talking to myself in the mirror and convincing myself what I am doing is right."

Another thing Adams is prepared for is the possible departure of some of his players over the summer. But just as important as the summer's comings and goings, as far as Adams is concerned, is the recovery of the players whose injuries have seen the Foxes so badly depleted this season.

"There are players that might interest other Premiership clubs, "he said. "I am sure bids will be inevitable.

"But they are not going out there on Saturday with price tags on their back saying "For Sale".

"I am more than happy with the squad of players I have here. My wish is to get some of the injured players back out playing."
