Claude Puel Feels Harry Maguire Needs To Be Protected From All The Attention

Leicester City manager Harry Maguire believes Harry Maguire needs to keep his focus on the pitch despite all the growing attention.

Maguire hogged all the lime lights following his excellent show in the World Cup and also had been on the radar of Manchester United for a brief period. Maguire remained at the King Power stadium and went on to sign a new five year contract with the club.

The 25 year old is now an integral part of the Three Lions setup and his stock has since gone upwards. The defender has played every minute of the ongoing Premier League campaign and is expected to be involved heavily as the season goes through.

Puel wants the player to concentrate on his football only. “I have had some discussions with Harry about this, all this attention around him.

“It is crazy. It is the first time for him and he has to manage this attention and to keep a good focus and concentration. It is a new experience for him.

“He is a young player, a fantastic player, but he is a human. He is learning how to deal with it. It is very tough what has happened around him and to manage this for the first time is very difficult but I am happy he is working for the team.

“Myself and the club sometimes have to protect him and help him with all this attention around him.”
