Southampton fans react as Claude Puel looks set for Leicester job

According to Sky Sports, former Southampton boss Claude Puel is in advanced talks with Leicester City over their vacant managerial spot, and Saints fans have been quick to give their reaction to the rumour.

Despite leading the south coast outfit to an eighth-place finish and the EFL Cup final in his first season in charge at St Mary’s, the Frenchman was sacked shortly after the end of the campaign and replaced by Mauricio Pellegrino.

One of the reasons he left was because of the lack of goals and entertainment on show, as well as the club’s Europa League journey coming to a disappointing end when they were knocked out at the group stage.

Southampton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the news, and while some said they were “absolutely shocked” that he was set for another Premier League chance, others say it “will be interesting” to see how he fares with the Foxes.
