The Foxes are lining up a move to bring experienced boss to the King Power stadium
CLAUDE PUEL is the third manager to take the front seat within the last 8 months, and still wants to build a team to match the clubs ambitions.
Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has made it clear that he wants City to challenge Europe’s elite on a regular basis.
However, based upon recent results Puel is now under immense pressure as the guys at the top are not happy with the way the club is going.
Not only do the clubs owners seem unhappy with Claude, there is reports of dressing room unrest and it seems clear that players seem confused by his bizarre tactics.
Fans have been calling for Puel’s head following the embarrassing 5-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday, and he is currently on borrowed time.
Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has quickly lost confidence in the Frenchman, and has a manager who has a wealth of experience lined up to take over the Foxes.
Spaniard Rafa Benitez has been labelled a hero for keeping Newcastle United in the Premier League this season with a very tight budget.
And according to reports he is the next man to potentially take over the Foxes, making it hard for him to say no with a massive transfer budget.
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley currently has the club for sale which is leaving Benitez, 58 in limbo with an uncertain future.
The Spanish Manager can bring a wealth of experience to the Foxes, having managed some club giants including Real Madrid, Napoli and Inter Milan.
Here are some of Rafa Benitez trophies:
1 x Champions League Winner, 1 x FA Cup Winner, 2 x Spanish Champion, 1 x Italian Cup Winner, 2 x Italian Super Cup Winner, 1 x FIFA Club World Cup Winner, 1 x UEFA Cup Winner, 1 x Europa League Winner, 1 x UEFA Supercup Winner, 1 x English Super Cup Winner
Leicester have made it clear that they need to be fighting for a top 6 place season after season, and unless they can start picking up results the stadium extension plan may be put on hold.
