Vardy - Puel Plans Small Changes

Vardy - Puel Plans Small Changes

England striker Jamie Vardy has been speaking about new Leicester City manager Claude Puel this international break.

With the former Monaco. Lyon and Southampton manager being appointed as Craig Shakespeare's replacement a few short weeks ago, Vardy was speaking to the Leicester Mercury about Puel's introduction to the team, and having settled in pretty well so far, although not a lot has changed so far, Vardy did confirm that Puel has some ideas that he wants to implement moving forward and the players are looking forward to it.

'It has been good. He hasn`t changed too much but he has said he wants to change a few things, coming up in the future after the international break, but he says they will only be little things. They are things he says will make us better, so we are looking forward to it.'

With Shakespeare's long involvement at the club as assistant manager before taking on the reins himself as Claudio Ranieri's replacement, Vardy dismissed speculation that the players would be resistant to Puel because everyone knows in football faces change.

'I think it is one of those things in football. No one is ever safe, especially in the managerial positions. Managers come and go and, as players, you get used to that. It is part of football. It is a results industry and the owners made the decision. The new manager has come in and four points from two games is a good start.'

With Harry Maguire joining Vardy on the pitch for the Germany friendly last Friday, he went on to say that the centre half was at home at international level and he praised him for what he brings to the Leicester side.

'You wouldn`t think it from looking at him, but especially on the ball he is great. He has got everything but you wouldn`t think it from looking at him. He is a great lad to have as well in the Leicester dressing room and the England dressing room.'
