''Puel Must Go'' - Leicester City Fans Plead For Claude Puel Axe After Crystal Palace Trouncing And Name The Replacement They Want
Claude Puel will have to face the wrath of the media after Leicester City were thrashed 4-1 by Crystal Palace in Saturday's evening kick-off in the Premier League, but it's the Foxes fans that are willing their struggling manager out of the door as they feel a real relegation battle looms for the former top-flight champions if Puel doesn't leave.
A brace from Wilfried Zaha and goals from Michy Batshuayi and Luka Milivojevic saw Roy Hodgson's Palace storm clear of their hosts, while a Jonny Evans consolation gave Foxes fans a slight glimmer when his goal pulled it back to one apiece.
However, a shocking performance has left many questioning whether Puel is the right man for the job at the King Power Stadium and after three defeats on the bounce then most Leicester fans are calling for Puel to be axed.
Speaking in the aftermath of the match, Leicester fans swamped Twitter with some very, very frank views about Puel:
Absolutely garbage puel... Its time [bill_basra]
Absolute disgrace Puel has obviously lost the dressing room it's time to go #Puelout [JohnClem79]
Got to be the end of #Puel now? #LEICRY [StevenBatey96]
Puel needs to be sacked now. Come on!! Wake up. [TomLievers]
Performance first half was good. I’m embarrassed right now. Disgraceful today and unacceptable. Puel has to go after that. [FreemanRyan0788]
When talking about a replacement for Puel, Leicester fans have called for a former manager to return at the helm and bring in help in the shape of a coach that helped Leicester win the Premier League. Some fans want Nigel Pearson back at the helm and want Craig Shakespeare as his assistant, as the Foxes look to steady the sinking ship.
Pearson in till the end of the season get rid of this joker #Puel now or else LCFC are screwed [ArcticBlond1]
I am fed up. Puel has to go get Shakespeare and Pearson back. Why try and change the way we play that won the premier league. If we don’t move soon @LCFC will be the 3rd club relegated. #puelout #pltonight [DashingDavies]
Puel out. Pearson in. [Ollie_eade05]
❌ "I don't think the fans like him [Puel] and I don't think the players like him."
