Claude Puel

Leicester City manager Claude Puel was pretty disappointed with his team’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Frenchman said that the defeat was unfair towards Leicester City.

Puel said, “It’s disappointing for the players because they gave their best. Of course, to concede a goal just a couple of seconds after the beginning of the game is a shame and we have to correct this. Our kick-off was not good enough. Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances. We needed to score in this moment, a strong period of domination in the first-half.

We pushed and we played against a team who were deep on the pitch. Without space, it was difficult. We found success with good moves and good quality and perhaps in the second-half we had good energy to finish this performance for another result but I think at the end it is a disappointment. It is not, for me, a fair result.”

The Foxes will next play Wolverhampton Wanderers at home next Saturday.
