Puel: Leicester were ‘naive’ during epic 4-3 loss to Wolves

Leicester City’s under pressure manager Claude Puel felt his team were too naive in their 4-3 defeat at Wolves today.

The Foxes conceded an injury-time winner at Molineux after twice coming from behind against Wolves in what was a fantastic Premier League encounter.

“It was an unbelievable game,” Puel told Sky Sports.

“I think we have a lot of different feelings in this game, we started with poor intentions and conceded two early goals.

“It was crazy, we come back into the game with good quality and good chances. We lacked quality in our play but we came back with fantastic spirit in the second half.

“We came back with desire, aggression and put Wolves under pressure. We pressed well, continued our intensity.

“But after the good feeling of coming back, we needed to waste some time. We didn’t manage the game at the end, we were naive in our goals and our management at the end.”

Puel was disappointed with the way his team let the point slip away from them despite being level at 3-3 after 90 minutes.

“The game is finished [at 3-3] – we needed to keep our position without trying to score another goal because there was a lot of tiredness.

“It was a fantastic feeling [to come back] and of course it is a big disappointment at the end.”
