Claude is the Newest Fox: Leicester Confirm Puel Appointment

Well that didn't take long. Barely a week after getting rid of Craig Shakespeare, Leicester City have confirmed that the new man to take them forward is French gaffer Claude Puel (whom spotkick searched for a pun for, but couldn't quite).

Puel, who is Leciester's third manager this calendar year, was manager of Southampton last season in the Premier League, whom opted to discard eighth place and a League Cup final as a barometer of success, but decided to relieve him of this duties as a result of the team's style of play under his stewardship (that’s not going well for them). The Frenchman was seen as the 'outstanding candidate' by Leicester chairman Vrichai Srivaddhaprabha, who was impressed by his 'attention to detail, knowledge our squad, understanding of our potential and his vision to help us realise it...'.

Puel has spent most of his managerial career in France's Ligue 1, where he won the title with Monaco in 2001, led Lille to UEFA Champions League football in successive years, took Lyon to a European semi-final, and finished fourth with Nice.

He is renowned for his grooming of young talents- Eden Hazard and Thierry Henry amongst others-, but his tenure at Lyon also took criticism for a dreary style of football, so that could be a bit of a dark... Claude? (ha!!! pun!!).


His first game of his new managerial assignment is a home clash against Everton.

    Piękny artykuł, w sumie to ma sens, jednakże w kilku aspektach bym polemizowała.
    Z pewnością Twój blog zasługuje na uznanie. Z pewnością tu
    jeszcze wpadnę.

    Hey! Quick question that's entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
