Leicester boss Puel pleased with Diabate brace

Leicester City boss Claude Puel was pleased with Fousseni Diabate's brace for their FA Cup win over Peterborough United.

Puel is eager for him to continue to put in the hard work that could see him make an impact in the Premier League.

He said: “Fousseni has good attributes to play in the Premier League with lots of pace and a good engine. He has good penetration and showed good combinations with his team-mates.

“It was good for him to show his quality but he has to continue to work hard on the training pitch and take things step-by-step."
