Leicester City have sacked Claude Puel. The Frenchman took over as manager in October 2017.
In a statement, the club said:
The Club would like to thank Claude for his efforts in leading the team during his 16 months in the role and wish him well in his future career.
Assistant Manager Jacky Bonnevay also departs with the Club’s best wishes.
First Team Coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler, supported by the Club’s established backroom staff, will assume responsibility for the senior squad while the Club begins the process of appointing a new manager.
The sacking comes following a 4-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday. The club are currently 12th in the Premier League, eight points above the relegation zone.
