If you’re a Claude Puel fan, this will be good news. If you aren’t and you want him out of your club, you might want to click away.
Currently in charge at Leicester City, the French manager enjoyed a rollercoaster of a second half of the season with the Foxes, starting strongly, but finishing rather poorly.
Despite just getting two wins from their last eight games, the club still managed to finish 9th in the Premier League, seven points behind seventh placed Burnley.
There have been a few question marks concerning his future at King Power Stadium, but no decision has been taken as of yet.
However, one could have been made for them had Saint-Etienne’s current owners decided to go through with the takeover from Peak6.
According to France Football, negotiations between the club and the takeover candidates stopped after it was made clear Peak6 wanted to replace the current manager, Jean-Louis Gasset, who worked wonders after taking over from Oscar Garcia, with Claude Puel.
It seems the president, Bernard Caïazzo, wants to make sure Laurent Blanc’s former assistant gets to keep his job going forward as a thank you for his work this year.
