​Leicester manager Puel confirms Simpson long term injury

Leicester City manager Claude Puel claims that right back Danny Simpson will be absent for a few weeks following a "long term" injury.

Puel spoke to the media ahead of a game against Liverpool on Friday, and the topic of Simpson's injury was discussed.

He said: "I spoke about it being a few weeks [on Tuesday].

"I don't know; maybe four or five weeks. We'll see when he can come back into training."

Simpson was unable to stay on the field during the 2-2 draw with Manchester United, coming off in the 57th minute due to a hamstring injury. The injury will now keep him out for at least a month.
