Leicester City has to worst opening to a Premier League campaign this season as they have not managed to register a win in seven games played so far.
Leicester midfielder, Your Tielemans admitted that life is “tough” with the Foxes currently as they are situated at the bottom of the league table. They have only been able to pick up one point from their opening seven league games, losing six matches in a row with best Aussie online casinos placing odds for each game.
Their most recent defeats came with large numbers as Brighton handed them a 5-2 defeat at the Falmer Stadium while Tottenham Hotspur defeated them cleanly in a 6-2 victory with a classic hat-trick from Heung-min Son. Due to these defeats, the pressure on Brendan Rodgers, the foxes’ manager, intensified.
Rodgers has already been a subject of receiving the sack letter, as Leicester City failed to bring in any new signing during the campaign, yet some players still left the club, as cited by experts of best online casino real money USA.
Tielemans, on the other hand, has taken his focus back to securing a spot in the Belgium squad ahead of the World Cup in Qatar coming up this winter. However, the Belgian midfielder claims that it is difficult to get his club’s poor run-of-form out of his head while on international duty.
Speaking at a Belgium press conference, the midfielder said: “I’m happy to get a bit of fresh air here [with Belgium] because it’s tough at Leicester right now. It’s clear that things are not going well at the club. We are doing everything we can as a team.
“At Leicester, the consecutive defeats have affected us as a group. We need to benefit from this break to recharge our batteries. It’s hard to get it off my mind as it keeps running through my head. Only my kids sometimes prevent me from thinking about it.”
During the summer transfer window, Tielemans was one of the many Leicester City players that were linked with a move away from the club, with Arsenal, the current league leaders, showing keen interest in the Belgian midfielder at the time just like Steve McManaman’s wife showed interest in her husband before getting married.
While the 25-year-old midfielder’s contract is set to expire at the end of this campaign, and yet he opted to stay with the Foxes for the current campaign. Still, the Belgian midfielder has no regrets about his decision to remain at the club despite the club’s position in the league table.
“I’m not going to speak too much about my contract situation at the moment,” he continued. “I didn’t leave Leicester in the summer as I always said the project had to be the right one.
“Just because things are getting worse now at Leicester doesn’t mean I should regret [staying].”
