Riyad finally gone

Ha Ha, Leicester fans begging a former player to thank them for supporting him. "Please riyad, acknowledge us."

Don't think anyone is begging for him to do it?

 

People are just saying it's surprising is all, especially given that he has put out statements in the past where he's specifically called out the fans and club and thanked them.

There was no release clause.

Thought he was talking Riyad, but now realize Kante, so yes, release clause fvcked us over there.

It was time. Wish him all the best for the rest of his career, good luck Riyad :scarf:

 

Refreshing to have moved on from the whole situation and now we have an opportunity to wisely invest and bring the squad on again.

How much has he gone for? Can't seem to find a figure and don't want to sift through 13 pages of this thread.

Doesn't sit well with me, seeing him in a Man Cty shirt. Thought i would be ok with it, I'm not. 

 

He has made his choice and its right for both parties. 

 

Now is time to move on and lets hope we can find an adequate replacement.

He has all the talent to be a success there, not sure he has the professionalism and dedication to quite reach the likes of Messi and Ronaldo’s levels

Bit harsh comparing him to the two greatest players of all time?  He'll do well and I think to be a professional footballer at any level these days you need a level of dedication none of use losers has got. :)  X

Yeah maybe but my point was that he probably has the natural talent of those type of players but doesn’t have the same fire in his stomach to demand perfection from himself. Maybe Guardiola will drill that into him. If he does then he’ll be a superstar

I think he is at one of the best clubs in the world and has the potential to be one of the top players in the world and will probably become so.  He already is by many metrics.  He will never be as good as Messi and Ronaldo but no one in the history of the game ever has been really.  I think I know where you are coming from but seems a little churlish.  Guardiola would not have been so keen on him if he felt he had a bad attitude or was not dedicated.  I am sad he has gone and we need to move on as a team but i wish him nothing but the very best because anything else makes me feel spiteful and I don;t like to see myself like that.  X

Very interested to see how he gets on at Man City, if Pep can get him working harder on the pitch and improve his decision making, he could be a hell of a player for them.

Wonder when he’ll thank us? Nothing yet, but he’s already thanked Man City. 

 

We plucked him from obscurity and made him who he is.

Good luck to him.
I wonder how long Pep will talk his sulking when he get dropped in a few months.

18 goals, 11 assists last season, tore teams apart constantly. Riyad doesn't show enough consistency to be classed as World Class, Sterling and Sane were brilliant last season, if he doesn't show consistency then I can't see him pushing one of them out.

 

Just because he doesn't show up for England? Bit like Riyad for Algeria.

Mahrez has composure in abundance, something Sterling severely lacks.

Sterling fortunate to benefit from all the assists that KDB, Silva and Sane serve up. Sterling was playing with the best Midfieider on the planet.

Mahrez shines in an average side..

 

If Sterling was at LCFC, could he do what Mahrez has ? Not a chance.

Just let's wish Mahrez well. Whatever has happened over this protracted move he has done well for Leicester City not only on the pitch with all the glorious displays but also from a financial point of view. It's what the Club do with these finances that's important now.

What does irritate me, however, is his thanking God on Instagram.

 

No mention of the fans.

No mention of the cleaners.

No mention of the physios.

No mention of the coaches.

No mention of the managers.

No mention of the memories.

No mention of the teammates. 

 

But God? Thanks to God. Come on, mate.

Yeah, flippin' ingrate.

 

Doesn't he know it was the cleaners that made him who he is today?

I worry that we are fast becoming the new Southampton. This is the 3rd summer running we've lost a key player to a Big 6 team and the chances are that we will face bids for Maguire and possibly Ndidi and Kasper over the next few weeks. Okay, we've not lost 4 or 5 players in one summer to one club like Southampton have in the past but the continued loss of quality players is a real concern, especially as we've failed to replace quality with the same level of quality thus far (even Ndidi, as good as he is, is not Kanté). My fear is that this can only result in our gradual slide down the table.:(

Ndidi is a prospect.. But didn't replace Kante.. Who could!! 

Agreed.................. However I didn't say he replaced The Little French Guy I think I said along came Wilf,

 

Kante would could never be replaced that's why it hurts every time I see him playing for Chelsea   :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

They did always have to take his plastic cup of Ribena out of the showers after every game.

Yep! 

The only real 'world class ' player ever to play for us.. With the exception of Cambiasso perhaps?

My point being that even the cleaners contributed more than a mythical being.

Fairly sure our owners will not let a mass exodus happen, we've seen it held up for 2 years with 1 quality player, and I severely doubt there are many release clauses (Vardy maybe?)....;) I still think N'Golo Kanté was a bigger loss to us than Riyad Mahrez
