Leicester protesters have 'Puel Out' signs taken by stewards before defeat to SouthamptonJanuary 12, 2019
But pictures have emerged of some of the protestors having the placards taken away from them by club stewards.
The Foxes have undergone a strange run of form, with wins over Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton balanced with losses to Cardiff, and to Newport County in the FA Cup.
Puel made seven changes to the team that faced Newport, who are in League Two, despite Leicester sitting 7th in the Premier League prior to the match.
Today’s 2-1 home defeat to Southampton has not improved the mood among the Leicester faithful, in spite of the Foxes’ comfortable league position.
Their hostility toward the Frenchman will only have increased as their team failed to overcome a Saints side reduced to 10 men before half-time.
Jamie Vardy lookalike Lee Chappy noted the stewards removing the signs from the fan, and said: “Club protecting Claude Puel, then.”
Innes Marlow tweeted: “Claude Puel summed up in one match – 72% possession. Nil points.”
Benjamin Blyth added: “Goodbye Claude Puel. I’ll carry your bags full of boring to the car.”
Puel is now odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked, according to bookmakers Paddy Power.
