Claude Puel: It’s a mistake to label my style as boring


Leicester City’s new manager Claude Puel has insisted that branding his style of play as boring is a mistake after getting off to a winning start with the club on Sunday.

Jamie Vardy scored his sixth goal of the season to give Leicester a one nil lead against Everton before Demarai Gray scored the second through a deflected effort to ensure that they ran out 2 nil winners against Everton at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester are now 11th on the log after securing back to back Premier League wins for the first time this season.


Meanwhile, Claude Puel was the subject of various criticisms during his time with Southampton for a supposed tedious style of play last season,  where they hit the back of the net just 17 times at home. However,  he is keen to do away with the myth after taking over at Leicester.

“I think it is a mistake because if we see again a lot of games with Southampton, we played some good football and there were a lot of chances we created but without a good clinical edge,” said Puel who was appointed last Wednesday.

“When you don’t score it is always difficult and a problem is ‘we don’t play football’. But it was not this with Southampton because we started with the ball, we created a lot of chances.

“We were sixth or seventh in the table for the number of chances created but 20th for being clinical. I like the attack, I like offensive play and quality, of course.”
