Leicester City’s star player James Maddison has revealed what Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said to him after the Premier League loss.

Following Manchester City’s win against LCFC, Guardiola approached the Foxes playmaker and the two were involved in dialogue and a friendly jab at one another. Leicester supporters would have been worried that the famous gaffer was tapping ‘Madders’ up ready to take him for his own team.

Yet the true nature and reason for the two having a chat was revealed by the No.10 and occasional makeshift right winger. According to the disregarded but acclaimed England international, the MCFC boss was having a joke with the opposing player.

Maddison claims that Guardiola asked something along the lines of ‘why didn’t you (as in Leicester in general) play like the final 15 minutes for the entire match?’. The former feels that the King Power club managed the game well, as any side must when facing the other City. To be fair to Brendan Rodgers’ men, they took 10 shots in the game. 50 per cent of those were, in fact, on target at Ederson’s goal.

Out of touch presenter takes swipe at Leicester City

Growing up in the 1990s, Richard Keys and Andy Gray were entertaining and likeable presenters, as I have outlined before. Granted, it was a different time, and I don’t think many progressive folk could disagree with their eventual ousting at Sky Sports. In addition to that, Keys is increasingly hostile and kind of unlikeable now, in my opinion.

Why the BeIN Sports anchor is the subject in our subheading is that he, once again, offered some less than flattering words on the Foxes following the Sky Blues defeat to MCFC last weekend. Keys labelled the clash as “absolute dross”.

The 65-year-old used the example of paying spectators being cheated, obviously missing the point that Leicester have improved a lot of late and did well to limit the Citizens to a solitary goal. Furthermore, many observers were of the opinion that the east Midlands side arguably deserved something out of the match. Though Keys is entitled to his view, regardless of his ignorance in this latest instance.
