Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans admitted that life is tough right now as they find themselves at rock bottom of the Premier League table. Leicester have picked up just one point from their first seven games and have now lost six in a row. Their most recent loss was a 6-2 defeat to Tottenham with Heung-Min Son coming off the bench to score a hattrick.
“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,” Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans said. “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.”
“I’m not going to speak too much about my contract situation at the moment,” he added. “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].”
“I don’t know, to be honest. Whatever their [the owners’] decision is, I will always respect it. I think we’ve seen enough. I felt the team tonight, if you watched them play in the first half, you could see the confidence and creativity. It’s just cutting out mistakes,” Brendan Rodgers said. “There is no doubt we’ve had a tough first seven games, especially after the summer we’ve had – Tottenham away, Arsenal away, Chelsea away, Manchester United at home, and a couple of other games we should win. It [the international break] has probably come at a good time to reset everything, and break the cycle from the summer as well. The owners will do what it is they feel they need to do.”
