Soccer – Foxes turn to Puel

Leicester City have named Claude Puel as their third manager in the last eight months. The 56-year-old has signed a deal that will keep him at the King Power Stadium until the end of the 2019/20 campaign. The Foxes dispensed with Claudio Ranieri's services in February before parting company with Craig Shakespeare earlier this month. Puel ended his one-year spell with Southampton in the summer despite guiding the club to the League Cup final and an eighth-placed finish in the Premier League. The Frenchman said: "It's a great privilege to become the new manager of Leicester City - a club whose values and ambitions are closely aligned to my own." Leicester are 11/10 with bet365 to beat Everton on Sunday and 8/1 to win the match from behind.
