Leicester City manager Claude Puel has told the French media he hasn’t had enough time with his new players to get them playing how he wants.
Puel was last week appointed Leicester City’s new boss, after the recent dismissal of Craig Shakespeare.
L’Equipe have reported on comments made by Puel when he was quizzed about Leicester City’s 2-0 victory over Everton on Sunday, and he was keen to point out the result wasn’t due to any great changes: “In two training sessions, we can’t revolutionise everything. So we’ve got to do the essentials, insisting on the need to restart properly, to play on the ground…“
Many Leicester City fans were sceptical about the appointment of Puel after he was criticised for his style of football whilst the Southampton manager last season. The Saints haven’t exactly been much better this campaign and their stuttering under Puel could have more to do with continually selling players.
Leicester City showed good attacking intent in the win against Everton, especially with Jamie Vardy’s opening goal and Demarai Gray adding the second in a Man of the Match performance.
The victory lifted Leicester City up to 11th in the Premier League, which capped a decent week for the club. The Premier League side reached the quarterfinals of the EFL Cup with a win against Leeds United, and will now hope to improve further with Puel.
