Eriksson is full of praise for Stoke after Leicester draw

Former England coach Sven Goran Eriksson is full of praise for Stoke City.

Eriksson was impressed by Stoke for their draw with Leicester City yesterday.

“I think they were very well organised. In the whole first half Leicester didn't create very much at all. I think they should build on what they did for the future," he said.

“I'm quite sure that the players in Stoke are rather happy, not because they made a draw but because they know they did a good job.

“I think they did a good game. It was a little bit boring to look at first half but it got better and better. I think they should be happy with what they did as a performance, organisation, defending well, fighting. I would be happy if I was the coach of Stoke.

“I don't think Claude Puel is very happy. He will have expected more in the first half. In the second at times they played really good football and created good chances but you are the home team, you should be a better team than Stoke for 90 minutes."
