The Leicester manager has had to face fire from the media and the fans regarding the security of his job this season a number of times.
“All the time there is speculation about difficulty around this club. I can speak a lot about this. To finish seventh during the first half of the season with all the problems we’ve had, it’s a very good performance. If people think our place is sixth, or higher, this is not the truth, it’s not possible. If seventh or eighth is bad then this is crazy.”
Puel drew further agony from fans after his team’s premature exit from the FA Cup for fielding a second team.
“I think we need to give time to the truth and not believe it is possible for all players to play all the games,” said Puel. “We drew in the cup with Manchester City, one of the best teams in the world, and lost to the lottery of penalties. In the FA Cup, we played with eight players who won the title. It was an experienced team.”
