Leicester City has announced the appointment of Claude Puel as new manager following the sacking of Craig Shakespeare last week.
The former Southampton manager will manage the club till June 2020 if all goes well while Michael Appleton who led Leicester to a 3-1 EFL Cup victory will remain as assistant manager.
In an interview on their official website, Puel said: “It’s a great privilege to become the new manager of Leicester City, a club whose values and ambitions are closely aligned to my own.
“The opportunity to help the club build on its remarkable recent achievements is a truly exciting one and I’m looking forward to working with the owners, players, staff and supporters to deliver further lasting success.”
Puel’s first assignment will be a victory in their weekend game against another troubled side, Everton.
