Leicester City, after series of six Premier League matches without a win, parted company with its manager, Claude Puel.
The Frenchman has been ‘The Foxes’ boss since October 2017. He replaced Craig Shakespeare, who had received a permament deal in June, but was fired only four months later after poor performances. Puel helped Leicester to climb up the table to ninth position at the end of the season.
This campaign has been quite fruitful until its half, but later the team has struggled to achieve any win. ‘The Foxes’ won on New Year’s Day with Everton, but then has been drop out of the FA Cup by Newport from League Two. In Premier League the club had tough fixtures, like against Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham, but only one point in six consecutive games was too much for the club’s authorities.
Jack Bonnevay, assistant manager, has also been released by Leicester. Until finding a new manager, first coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler will take care of the team.
