Romeu praises Claude Puel's meticulous work

By SFC Media time Tue 04 Oct Leicester vs Saints

Oriol Romeu has praised Claude Puel’s meticulous work in keeping the side energised so far this season.

The necessary rotation of the squad due to a busy fixture schedule saw Puel return to the starting XI that defeated West Ham United when Saints took on the Foxes at King Power Stadium.

He made seven changes from the trip to Israel, and Romeu feels this has been key to their recent, unbeaten form.

He said: “I think that we are doing well. There was five or six changes from the last game which is what we’re going to have to do this year because of more competitions and more games.

“We are proving that we have a big squad with enough quality for those kind of rotations.”

“We try to always play the same style at home and away. We need to do the same every time and whoever is playing has the same mentality.

“That’s helping us. Whoever comes in they know what they have to do and nothing changes.”

“He said on the first day he wants good work. He works with us a lot tactically and I think that comes out when we’ve got clean sheets in the last six games.

“That’s positive and like I said the players who don’t start know what they have to do if they are in for the next game, which is very important.”
