Tetê – Games (14) – Goals (1)
The first-ever Brazilian to wear the Foxes shirt burst into the game in an incredible debut at Aston Villa. He was aggressive, creative, quick and tricky. He scored an excellent goal and was a constant menace throughout.
That was the last time he played well for the club, which speaks volumes of the coaches skills to train all that positivity out of him over the coming weeks. Crucially in the Aston Villa victory he was allowed to roam both the outside and inside left channels and play on the shoulder of defenders. He caused havoc.
By the next game, he was dropping in deep like so many right-sided players in previous terms – coincidence? Tetê allowed full-backs to get into position whilst he cut inside looking for central passes. That was pretty much the summary of this talented Brazilian’s time at the club. Completely mismanaged and wasted.
Dennis Praet – Games (27) – Goals (1)
It is not a mistype, I had to double check that was the number of games Dennis Praet was involved in. 15 of these 27 were obviously as a sub and it’s worth noting he didn’t complete one 90 minutes of football all season. In total he managed 649 minutes of football and all that I can remember from this season was a well-taken goal at Aston Villa. That’s still a lot of minutes to just disappear.
Where does he play best? He serves as a type of football Polyfilla, filling in positional gaps. The only reason I see him staying at the club next season is to pick up a hefty wage and then go on loan.
