Leicester have a bright future - Stowell

25th February 2019, 18:02 by Bobbie Jackson

Leicester caretaker boss believes the club is an attractive prospect to any potential manager but insists the squad must perform.

Claude Puel was dismissed after 16 months in charge on Sunday and Stowell along with fellow first-team coach Adam Sadler have been placed in temporary charge.

They will oversee proceedings while the board get on with the difficult job of finding a new manager over the next few weeks.

The likes of Brendan Rodgers, Rafael Benitez, Peter Stoger, Sean Dyche and Roberto Martinez have been linked with the post over the last 24 hours.

Stowell believes the club is making all the right moves off the field to ensure the future is bright and feels it would be an attractive job to any prospective manager.

"They've got all the tools here. We're in the process of building a new training ground, the stadium's going to be expanded, we've got fantastic owners, great support and a very, very good squad,” Stowell said.

"Somebody can come in and work with those players. We've got to keep that squad together."

The interim boss also claimed that the squad is capable of finishing as high as seventh if they fulfil their true potential over the remaining months of the campaign.

He added: "I spoke to the players this morning and told them how good they are and how good they can be, but also challenged them.

"We are a top seven team, and that's where we should be. Obviously you've got to earn that right, and we haven't recently.”
