​New boss Puel prepared for long haul at Leicester

Leicester City boss Claude Puel insists his job at the King Power Stadium is an "evolution, not a revolution", one week after being appointed as Craig Shakespeare's successor, reports Sky Sports.

Puel enjoyed the perfect start to his managerial career with the Foxes when beating Everton 2-0 last weekend, but the 56-year-old is adamant his work at Leicester is part of a long-term process rather than short-term fix.

"This week we continue to try to work but it's an evolution because we cannot change everything just in a few days," said Puel.

"It's important to continue this work but also to continue some bits with the players because it's important they can play their game with confidence."
