Leicester City

Under-fire Puel the man says Chilwell

5th February 2019, 13:36 by Michael Holland

Leicester star Ben Chilwell has called on the fans to trust boss Claude Puel to get things right at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes slipped to defeat against Manchester United at the weekend and have won just four home league games this season, to leave them in 11th, six points behind Wolves in seventh.

Frustration continues to grow at the club and under-fire boss Puel was jeered by a section of supporters after he substituted James Maddison in the second half.

However, Chilwell has asked the fans to stay patient as Puel is the man for the job.

"Of course, him, us, everyone at the training ground are all trying our best. It would be nice if they were patient with us but you can understand they expect results with the quality we've got," said the England left-back. "It's a learning curve for us and we are learning and improving. That's the main thing you have to take from the past few weeks.

"If you look at the team now from the team which won the league it's pretty much a different 11 and it's a very young squad.

"The fans expect results which is understandable but it's a young team which is learning. We're not scrapping in a relegation battle."
