Puel: United defeat wasn't a fair result for Leicester

Rio Ferdinand has advised Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

"It's a difficulty but my first feeling was that it is fantastic for this player to show their quality and it's good publicity for Leicester", said Puel, who feels Maguire now has the confidence that he belongs on the world stage.

Leicester were not reportedly looking at Benkovic as a replacement for Maguire, but there are indications that Soyuncu's imminent arrival is about to change their plans.

Asked about United's interest, Foxes boss Puel joked with the media at his pre-match press conference.

Maguire will be in the Leicester squad for tomorrow's Premier League opener at United and Puel joked: "I can confirm he is going..."

"Harry, he's happy also to remain with us".

"I'm confident he's going to Manchester United, but only for a couple of hours with us", Puel joked with reporters.

"When you look at Mourinho when he first came into the Premier League, he was happy, he was cheeky, he was smiley, he was arrogant in a good way", he said on the BBC One programme.

And history says it would be a massive one given that the Hammers have won just one of their last 45 top-flight starts at Anfield. We beat Manchester City in the league and the Champions League last season so I think we can beat anyone in the world.

"I like a player with a possibility to start from the back and Harry is this player".

"It has been a hard pre-season with all the worldwide players coming back step-by-step and without the good levels and freshness necessary to play 90 minutes".

"For us it is not possible".

Chilwell who says his team-mate has no plans to quit the King Power Stadium.

He becomes the sixth new arrival of the summer following the acquisitions of Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal. I am happy with the squad and the transfer window.

'It was his first season with Leicester and it's important, and he understands this, that he remains with the club for the owner for a new season and we will see after that'.
