Leicester City absolutely must sack Puel and replace him with Dortmund’s failed schemer

Leicester fans in the Transfer Tavern have finally caught their breath after a dramatic nine-goal thriller against Tottenham on the final day of the season.

The Foxes could not come out on top following a series of defensive howlers which allowed Tottenham to steal a 5-4 victory at Wembley. The result meant Leicester ended the Premier League campaign in ninth place – seven points behind Burnley in the race for European football. Despite a decent season, Claude Puel’s future at the club is uncertain.

The Frenchman replaced Craig Shakespeare in October 2017 with the club languishing in 18th place with only six points to their name. The turnaround has been magnificent despite some terrible results along the way. Despite lifting them up the table, Puel could be replaced.

It would be a risky move for the Foxes but one that could pay off. If they are to replace the ex-Southampton manager, former Dortmund manager, Peter Bosz, should be on their shortlist. Out of work since being dismissed by the German club in December, he is a great candidate to take the reins at the King Power.

Bosz is the man who guided Ajax to the Europa League final in 2016 where the Dutch side were beaten by Manchester United and to second in the Eredivisie table. He later replaced Thomas Tuchel at Dortmund but was sacked despite a strong start to the campaign.

A pure footballing man, Bosz’s attacking style of play would be a nice change from Puel, as well as give the Foxes one of the most interesting managers outside the elite to develop under.

The move to Dortmund may have been a step up too quickly for the Dutchman, but a move to England with Leicester could be the perfect home.
