Coach of English Premier League side Leicester City Claude Puel has cast doubt over the future of Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa at the club, few days after assuring him he is in his plans for the season.
Puel was asked if the trio of Ahmed Musa, Leonardo Ulloa and Yohan Benalouane who are yet to taste action in the Premier League have a future at the club and the manager response hinted at an uncertain future for the trio.
” I don’t know, ” he said during the post match interview of their 1-1 draw against West Ham where the trio were once again not listed in the matchday squad for the game.
“It could happen for the next games, perhaps with tiredness of some players, with some injuries, we will see.
“We do not have a big squad and it’s important to respect all the players, of course.
“Some players for the moment are starting players, on the bench, or cannot play. But for these games, they can have some opportunities to play. So it’s important to keep them with a positive attitude, strong and with hard work on the pitch and for this moment they are professional and very concentrated about training sessions.
“They also play sometimes with the Under-23s to keep a good level. That is very important.
“After the games in November and December, we will see in the window of course, with game time for every player whether it’s enough and not enough, and we will see what we can do with different players.
“But with the moment I am happy with the hard work of the team.”
