Leicester boss Puel analysed Wenger at Monaco

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has revealed the influence Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has had on his managerial career.

The Frenchman, who has had stints as manager at Southampton and Lille, spent almost his entire playing career at Monaco.

There, he had the opportunity to study the style of Wenger, who managed the principality club between 1987 to 1994.

"Arsene has been an important person for me," said Puel.

"He likes technical players too but I analysed him and after a game he always had a good attitude and was always calm. I think that is very important for a manager."
