Anyone Betting on Brendan Rodgers to Leicester Will Lose Their Money, Says Claude Puel

Anyone Betting on Brendan Rodgers to Leicester Will Lose Their Money, Says Claude Puel

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has defiantly responded to claims he’s set to be replaced by Brendan Rodgers, claiming anybody who bets on the Northern Irishman replacing him will be losing their money.

Various tabloid reports have surfaced suggesting the Foxes hierarchy are growing weary of the Frenchman’s management style, with Leicester out of both domestic cups following their 2-1 defeat to minnows Newport County earlier this month, as well as last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat against relegation-threatened Southampton.

Rodgers has been mentioned as the potential successor but Puel is having none of it, and was quite insistent when he met with the media earlier today.

Ahead of his side’s trip to Wolves on Saturday, via the Sun, Puel explained: “I cannot manage these rumours or speculation.

“It’s often we have a lot of bets about my future.

“But I’m sorry for a lot of people who made this bet on him [Rodgers] because they lost a lot of money.

“That is their concern. I hope this situation continues.”

Whilst they might be out of both cup competitions, Leicester are eighth in the Premier League table, just one point off seventh – so should Puel really be fearing for his job?

And would Rodgers be keen to replace him at the King Power Stadium?

What do you think?
