Leicester City manager Claude Puel has explained why he decided to play winger Marc Albrighton as a full-back in the 0-0 draw with Southampton on Thursday.
Puel seized the chance to experiment with different options at the back against Southampton, as Albrighton and Aleksander Dragovic were preferred ahead of regular right-back Danny Simpson and center-back Wes Morgan. While the omission of Simpson came as a surprise, Albrighton put in solid shift on his first appearance of the season at right back. The 28-year-old sent in eight crosses and provided good support for Riyad Mahrez from defense. "I thought it was important for me to refresh some players and try some other players in different positions, like Marc Albrighton," said Puel. "He can provide good crosses and start attacks with the ball. He could give a good help to Riyad for example. This is interesting for the future." Apr 20 - 11:12 AM
