Daniel has had surgery,” said Puel. “It was a success, but he will not be available normally for four months.

“I was with sadness after the game to Daniel because he sacrificed himself for the team. We lost Daniel, but of course, after what’s happened, it’s another thing, another grief.”

Puel also provided an update on the fitness of midfielder Matty James, who this week returned to training after a long-term Achilles problem.

Wes [Morgan] is okay, all of the other players are okay,” added the City manager. “Just Matty James, he made this week the warm-up with us, it was a good feeling.”
