Vardy backs Puel impact

- Reuters, LONDON

Nov 14, 2017-Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says new manager Claude Puel has been able to get the club back on track without making huge changes and that the Frenchman plans only to make small adjustments that will help them improve. 

Puel joined Leicester late last month and has helped the 2015-16 champions climb out of the relegation zone and into 12th spot on the back of a win and a draw in the two league games he has taken charge of so far. 

“They are things he says will make us better, so we are looking forward to it. The new manager has come in and four points from two games is a good start,” said Vardy.

The 30-year-old also backed former teammate Danny Drinkwater to be given another chance to earn a spot in the England squad ahead of next year’s World Cup. 

The Chelsea midfielder declined a call-up for friendlies against Germany and Brazil due to a lack of match fitness. “If he is playing the best he can, then why not?” Vardy told British media. “He should be in with a shot, but it is down to him to make sure he puts the performances in there.”
