Claude Puel has been given two games to save his job at Leicester, according to reports.

The Foxes lost 2-1 to Manchester United yesterday, and according to The Sunday Mirror, Puel’s position is already under scrutiny just one game into the new season.

Former Southampton manager Puel replaced Craig Shakespeare in the Leicester dugout in October last season, guiding the club to a 9th-place finish.

Leicester were largely active in the transfer window this summer, spending big on James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu among others, but Puel may not be given the chance to work with those new players if results don’t improve soon.

Games against Wolves and Puel’s old club Southampton will be pivotal in determining his future as Leicester manager, the report claims.

Thierry Henry and Roberto Martinez, who currently work together with Belgium, have both been suggested as possible replacements if Puel does leave.
