Bad news for Leicester: Claude Puel confirms Harry Maguire blow

Leicester suffer blow pre-Burnley

Claude Puel has confirmed that Leicester City talisman has suffered an injury blow ahead of their game with Burnley at the weekend.

The Englishman has made a name for himself over the past 12 months.

He impressed during his time at Hull City and moved to Leicester back in the summer of 2017.

He then went on to win the Foxes player of the season before jetting off to Russia for the World Cup.

Safe to say, his stock rose over that summer.

That’s because he was one England’s star men as Gareth Southgate’s side made it all the way to the semi-finals.
