Puel: Premier League sack culture alive and well

Claude Puel says the sack culture inside the Premier League is alive and well.

Puel is now back in France after losing jobs at Southampton and Leicester City.

He told L'Equipe: “One year in the Premier League is already very good.

“[Antonio] Conte arrived at Chelsea with a pedigree behind him, he was coach of Italy, he won a championship and a cup and Chelsea didn't keep him. Same with (Manuel) Pellegrini, when he was sacked from Manchester City.

“Here, it's very strong. Even when you won a European Cup, you get fired. It's part of the game. Three bad matches can be enough to annoy the owner.

“It's the short term that interests them, not how the coach thought about winning this game.

“We must try to match the development of the team and the players with the short term. But we all know that there is a gap.

“Look at the renewal of coaching in England. Except Klopp or Guardiola, who arrive with a staff and a track record and who have more time, nobody is safe."
