Leicester boss Claude Puel hails fans for Wolves win: Fantastic!

Leicester boss Claude Puel hails fans for Wolves win: Fantastic!

My job is to build something with Leicester; to continue to develop this club, to develop the players and the squad.

He played the full duration last Friday when the Foxes, who sold one of their star attackers in Riyad Mahrez over the summer, opened their 2018-19 campaign with a 2-1 loss at Manchester United. We need now to find a solution to replace him and it will be a good opportunity for another player to show their quality.

"We changed the system to three centre-backs and had more stability - I'm pleased it was a tough game because we saw the character of the team".

"I think it's easier to start this season".

Gray, yet to be involved with England at senior level, has 18 caps for the Under-21s, with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate having given him his debut for that side.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "I'm fine, I've just got some stud marks".

Ronaldo, Modric and Salah, nominated for UEFA Player of the Year
Luka Modric helped his nation reach the final of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation where he won the Golden ball award. UEFA have announced the three finalists for the 2017/18 UEFA Men's Player of the Year award.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel defended Jamie Vardy after the England striker was sent off for a unsafe challenge during Saturday's 2-0 Premier League win against Wolves.

Puel, now the favourite with bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post, has been described as "very ambitious" and hard-working by Gray.

Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo said: "Of course, we are disappointed, but we have to be clinical".

"We weren't far off last season".

"(We need to be more) ruthless, clinical but at the same time relentless to keep on doing the same things because this is how we work, this is how we train and this is how we want to do so control the game, manage the possession of the ball, create chances and now we must score". We have talent but we must believe that we can score at every moment, the beginning, middle and end of the game.

"I think there are a lot of positives to take into our game on Saturday". Congratulations for Wolverhampton because they played very well with style. The fans [were] with the players.
