Claude Puel denies bad relations with Jamie Vardy: “He is an endearing guy.”

Speaking on RMC show Footissime earlier this week, football manager Claude Puel denied bad relations with Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

“No. It did not cause my departure from Leicester. To be honest, I had a good relationship with Jamie (Vardy). You shouldn’t believe everything that you read or you hear. Jamie is an endearing guy, a very good player. Aside from that, there are moments where one might perform, where one might perform less, Jamie had some struggles at the beginning of the season. He was injured for a long time, he didn’t have much of a pre-season after the World Cup. He had some ground to make up, and he did so. He will continue to perform, now and in the future.”
