Puel angry with sluggish Leicester

Manchester United won a close encounter versus Leicester City earlier today as the match ended 1-0. The Foxes boss Claude Puel was left fuming at his side’s result at the end of the match.

“When you see all the chances and half-chances we had, we deserve a minimum of a draw,” Puel told Sky Sports. “I think it’s not a fair result but I’m angry about our poor performance at the beginning of the game. To concede another goal early, to have to chase the game is always difficult. I don’t understand sometimes, it’s crazy. At the beginning we don’t believe enough in our quality because after when we play, we play forward with good intention and can hurt a team like United.”

“It’s a big disappointment for the players, the staff and the fans because we found a good quality in the second half, a lot of chances to come back and we have to seek a different explanation in our poor performance at the beginning of games. We have to take responsibility. But it’s a shame because it was not a fantastic start from United. We played behind and sideways, without pressing or enough intention to go forward.”
