Leicester City boss Claude Puel has called on his clubs fans to continue supporting his side after they slipped to a record-breaking fourth successive top-flight loss at the King Power this evening.
The Foxes have won just one game so far in 2019 – a 1-0 victory over Everton on New Year’s day – and French coach Puel’s unpopularity with his clubs fans slipped to new depths after a comprehensive 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
Speaking after the game former Southampton manager Puel admitted that his side is struggling, but also suggested performances have not been as bad as recent results suggest.
“I understand the fans’ feelings, they are disappointed,” Puel told the BBC.
“It is a difficult period for my team.
“I would like the fans to keep their support for the players, to support all these young players in the next game. At this moment we are unlucky. They have the feeling that they are not getting fair results.
“When we look at just the results it is not enough, it is not normal. But when we look at the performances it is crazy in this period. It is difficult to accept.
“I manage the pressure, the most important thing is my players.”
Leicester remain in 12th place in the Premier League table after tonight’s loss.
