Claude Puel has been sacked as Leicester boss. The Frenchman paid the price after a disastrous run of results. His fate was confirmed this morning after yesterday’s heavy 1-4 defeat to Crystal Palace at home.
It is understood that Celtic chief Brendan Rodgers is favourite to take over at the King Power Stadium.
Puel had been under huge pressure after failing to win in the Premier League since beating Everton away on New Year’s Day.
The Foxes fans have been calling for his head for the past few months, and they have finally got their wish.
Puel was a surprise appointment for many when he replaced Craig Shakespeare in October 2017.
After an initial strong start, fans grew increasingly frustrated with his ‘boring’, possession-based football.
