Claude Puel can't understand Jamie Carragher's question on Sky Sports

Leicester’s sacking of Craig Shakespeare and the appointment of Claude Puel surprised plenty of football fans.

Shakespeare kept the Foxes up last season but, after a difficult start this campaign, was dismissed at the King Power Stadium.

Replacing him is a manager that was sacked by Southampton in the summer for his underwhelming style of play.

And ahead of his first match in charge of Leicester, Sky Sports pundits decided to conduct a rather bizarre interview.

Sat on the Leicester bench, David Jones, Alan Pardew, Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry asked the French manager some questions ahead of his first match against Everton.

Despite only managing in England for one season, Puel’s English is rather good.

However, understanding Carragher isn’t always easy.

And after the scouser asked Puel a question, the manager had to admit he didn’t understand it. It meant Henry had to intervene and translate Carragher’s words into French.

Watch: Puel can't understand Carragher

It was all rather hilarious. Take a look:

Carragher has since tweeted about the awkward moment after everyone on social media was talking about it.

Twitter reacts

“I was speaking as slowly as possible as well!!” the former defender wrote.

It was a pretty hilarious moment, though, and football fans on Twitter couldn’t stop laughing. Check out the reaction:

While there are some reservations about the rather pull football Puel played at Southampton, it seems the manager won’t be changing his approach at Leicester.

“It is not a priority just to play good football or nice football,” he has said.

“The priority is to win, whether at Leicester, Southampton, or Arsenal – all. It is about how can we have good results.”
