Puel, is he using money on wrong horses, risky path chosen

DATE: 26.05.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

TCF certainly hope that Claude Puel will find his way at Leicester City, but so far it looks a bit risky and to see the pattern is always important, and we can see a bit of it allready


If you look at City's team at the moment, there are a number of clear ideas that comes to your head. After watching 95 % of all City games last season you start to see what type of football Puel is trying to play.

Against Tottenham at Wembley, City were back to the old formula, right for this type of game. To be able to both be a team keeping posession and also able to counter attack is what he is after, and to get that working well you need a squad of players who can adapt.

Claude Puel needs to tell us where he will be heading with his group of players. There are too many players at Leicester City at the moment and with a new full-back signed in Pereira, you must believe that players will be leaving.

The transfer deals done under the previous management, Ranieri and Shakespeare, never hit bullseye. Gray and Ndidi, both signed by Ranieri, are good and promising, and the moves for Maguire and Kantè were brilliant.

Claudio Ranieri made a number of mistakes in the transfer market, buying players who were probably not that much needed and instead of bringing in more quality and more points, everything crashed and players signed for millions never became great.

Craig Shakespeare made one signing last summer that was needed, and it worked wonders. Harry Maguire was there to fill the gap after Robert Huth and he did it well and also got the chance to do it. That was a brilliant move.

The rest of Shakespeare's dealings never really made any sense. Jakupovic, Iheanacho, Iborra, Silva and Dragovic all used time to adapt and none of them really got the chance to be steady first choices, being rotated with the players allready at the club, or sidelined.

Iborra made a bit of impact, while the other signings not really got a proper chance to play enough to settle in.

Puel made his first signing in Fousseni Diabate, but why ?. A man for the squad and nothing more, no instant quality rise in the team, and just one more fighting for a place.

Ricardo Pereira is not a proven player at the very highest level and a risky signing for Premier League. With two or maybe three options to play in this position allready, you start to wonder why using £ 20 millon on a right-back who will not be crucial to the team.

Darnell Johnson, Daniel Amartey and Danny Simpson are all at the club, and they are all good alternatives. So Puel has made his decission and this would see Johnson, Amartey or Simpson being sold or moved on.
