Claude Puel introduces soft rotation and  new youth philosophy mindset

DATE: 01.12.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

If you have followed the management career of Claude Puel, you will find a pattern that shows how he is able to combine a bit of rotation, work on a gameplan and at the same time introducing youth

Demarai Gray and Ben Chilwell were the two surprises in the line-up in his first game, both played to their best level. City won the battle and Puel got a great start to his management at Leicester.

Since then it's been a bit predictable, but against Spurs, Gray was back on the bench, Albrighton and Okazaki from start. He also introduced Hamza Choudhury to the Premier League and a bit of a surprise to see him getting a chance at such a crucial time in the game.

The obvious move would be to give Andy King the chance, but Puel instead introduced Choudhury. This is something that Choudhury will grow from and the fact that City managed to pull it of and take all three points is mission accomplished for the debutant.

How many changes Puel will do in the January transfer window who knows. Players are linked, and no smoke without fire, so there are likely that one or two new faces will find their way to King Power.

A number of loan moves looks likely to be happening, and a sale or two could also be happening. Ahmed Musa, Daniel Amartey and Robert Huth looks far from first teamers and moves away are likely.

To see Puel making space for the younger players is excactly the policy the club must introduce, not being affraid of giving young players a chance and Puel is a good spotter of talent as his previous positions has shown.

From the past, Jock Wallace, might have been the manager who really threw in young players with names as David Buchanan, Andy Peake and Gary Lineker all getting their debuts as teenagers under the Wallace period.

Martin O'Neill was the one giving Emile Heskey the chance to establish himself when in his teens. Peter Shilton made his debut at City as a 16 year old and was a first choice as a 19 year old.

City still holds the record for the youngest captain ever in a FA Cup final, with David Nish (21) skippering the team. The youngest debutant playing for Leicester is Ashley Chambers, who made his debut in an EFL Cup game at the age of 15.
