Coach of Leicester City Claude Puel is battling to save his job, according to reports from multiple sources. The Frenchman is in the eye of the storm after a run of poor form that has seen Leicester City win just four out of their last seventeen Premier League matches.
It’s hard to believe that not long ago the Foxes were neck to neck with Burnley competing for the seventh position, however a poor run that has seen the Foxes suffer consecutive losses to the Magpies (Newcastle) and the Clarets (Burnley), and a draw against the Saints (Southampton) has buried their hopes of a 7th place finish.
Leceister City home form has been more worrisome and that was certainly their biggest stumbling block in moving up the table. The Foxes have failed to win at the King Power Stadium in five consecutive games, failing to win against Southampton, Stoke City, AFC Bournemouth, Newcastle and Burnley during the barren run.

With the hope of seventh-place finish and Europa League qualification dreams shattered, finishing eighth on the League table is the only tangible thing to hope for, the Leicester City board is now planning a major overhaul that would see many go out and many come in, but whether or not would Claude Puel will be the man overseeing this transformation is the question begging for an answer.
There have been numerous reports about the rising tension in the dressing room as well, with a lot of players apparently not in support of Claude Puel anymore, exactly the same scenario with Claudio Ranieri in the 2016/17 season when he completely lost his players trust.
It is unlikely that the club will release an official statement on Puel’s future anytime soon since it won’t be the ideal time for such announcement. Whether Claude Puel leaves or stays at Leicester City next season depends on a lot of factors which the Leceister City board will have to carefully evaluate before arriving at a decision that will be the best for all the parties involved.
