Following his dismissal for a petulant and immature kick against Callum Wilson, Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu has apologized
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear – I feel the poignancy of the Chuckle Brothers is appropriate in relation to Leicester City’s disasters at Bournemouth on Sunday.
Many culprits in the Foxes line-up contributed to the shambolic second half performance: Jonny Evans was incredibly poor for his standards; Ryan Bennett, bless him – great in the tackle, awful in some other areas.
However, some of manager Brendan Rodgers’ tactical choices and substitution selections are quite frankly, seemingly, amateurish.
Leicester City capitulation embodied by Caglar Soyuncu
Obviously one player who made as large an error as his boss, was centre-back Caglar Soyuncu. His immaturity hit a level not seen too often in the Premier League, kicking an opponent off his feet as the referee watched on. We know he’s got it in him but it really surprised us all.
For this ridiculous moment of petulance, the Turk found himself red carded and most probably cost his team three points. Even a draw would’ve been mighty helpful to the East Midlanders’ Champions League cause.
As you can see above, a while after the game last night the pugnacious centre-half showed a more reflective side of himself by sharing an apology to Foxes supporters on social media. In all honesty, I believe him; Foxes of Leicester also hopes he remains on Filbert Way for next season.
Leicester City’s next opponents are Sheffield United at the King Power Stadium. The Blades have won three of their previous four premiership outings, including victories against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
