Claude Puel on his future at Leicester: “There is a gap between the club’s capabilities & the very high expectations.”

Speaking on Canal Football Club this evening, Leicester City boss Claude Puel was asked about increasing media speculation that suggests that his job is in grave danger.

“We finished the 1st half of the season sitting in 7th place, just behind the six biggest teams. In the cup we were eliminated on penalties by Manchester City, but there is still quite a unique environment around the team since they won the title. I think there is a gap between the genuine capabilities of this team and the expectations which are very big. This brings about the fact that we go from a win to a defeat with vastly different sentiments. You have to take it into consideration and just deal with it, whilst maintaining a certain emotional stability for the players, the staff and myself.”
