Leicester City sack their manager

Leicester City have this morning confirmed the sacking of first team manager Claude Puel following the club’s 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

He lasted just 16 months in charge at the King Power Stadium but yesterday’s hammering leaves Leicester 12th in the Premier League, eight points above the relegation zone.


“Leicester City Football Club has today (Sunday) parted company with Claude Puel, who leaves his position as First Team Manager with immediate effect.

“The Club would like to thank Claude for his efforts in leading the team during his 16 months in the role and wish him well in his future career.

“Assistant Manager Jacky Bonnevay also departs with the Club’s best wishes.

“First Team Coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler, supported by the Club’s established backroom staff, will assume responsibility for the senior squad while the Club begins the process of appointing a new manager.

“The Board will make no further comment until this process is complete.”


A variety of supporters gave their feedback to the decision with the majority happy to see him gone – check out what fans had to say on the next page.
