Puel envisages future leader role for Leicester star Maguire

Claude Puel is confident Harry Maguire will emerge as a future leader for Leicester City.

Maguire has been a consistent presence in the Foxes backline since arriving from Hull City in the summer.

"If he can keep this consistency and quality, it's natural he becomes the leader of the team," said Puel.

"He can be the leader of the defence, but different players can have good leadership in this team

"It's important to have different solutions and different options within the team.

"Wes Morgan at the moment has the leadership. Schmeichel also has good leadership. Jamie Vardy for his goals and Riyad Mahrez for his qualities."
