Puel has backing of players - Chilwell
Ben Chilwell says the entire squad are behind Leicester City boss Claude Puel amid rumours of discontent.
Several reports before Christmas claimed Puel had lost the dressing room due to his methods and a poor festive period would spell the end of his time at the King Power Stadium.
However, the Foxes have managed to pick up nine points from their last four Premier League matches - beating Manchester City and Chelsea in that run - and all appears to be rosy within the Leicester camp.
England international Chilwell has spoken about the rumours of a fallout with the manager, insisting they are simply not true.
"That's just a load of rubbish," he said of the reports. "We're very happy with him, he's very happy with us. I think that shows on the pitch. Nine points from the past four games – the only way to answer reports like that is to go and get wins and that's what we've been doing.
"It's a very young side. It's weird, you've got Hamza inside, you've got Wilf inside, you've got Harry next to you, you've got Dimi in front, you've got Madders in front. There's a lot of young players and we're all loving playing together.
"I'm very happy that the manager has put a lot of faith in us to play."
