Claude Puel Hoping To Bring Back European Nights To Leicester City

Leicester City manager Claude Puel says he would love to see his club back in the Champions League once again.

Back to back defeats in the Premier League has left them lurching in the 11th position and a win against West Ham United on Saturday can stable things for the time being.

Since their title triumph back in 2015-16 the Foxes have failed to rediscover that efficiency on the pitch. They fought brilliantly in the Champions League in the following season and defeated Sevilla in a two legged fixture to advance to the quarter finals.

But a determined Atletico Madrid made the then English champions pay for their inexperience on this big stage. Despite their absence in the Champions League, Puel is hoping to bring back the club back to the European glory.

“When I was a player or when I was a manager in France I managed and played a lot of international games – Champions League games, Europa League,

“It’s important to have the ambition and I hope for the club to find this competition again.

“I hope we can find this level again. When I look at the games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights it’s hard. I would like to find the possibility again with this club.

“If we continue to work with consistency and stability, why not?

“When Leicester were champions, the season after it was difficult to have the consistency in Premier League and Europe.

“When the club doesn’t have the habits to play every three days it’s difficult to maintain good results. Leicester needs to go step-by-step, to find good stability.”
