Will Jamie Vardy, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho sign respective new contracts with Leicester City? Foxes of Leicester take a look at an expert opinion and supply our own views on the separate but similar LCFC situations. Meanwhile, FoL also cover Enzo Maresca’s latest press conference for the east Midlands side.
Both of the Nigerian stars are out of contract in 2024. Surely many English top-flight clubs will be knocking on their doors if the Foxes remain in the second tier. Happily, Jordan Blackwell also suggests Vardy will receive a new deal if they return to the big time.
Which topics did Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca speak on at his pre-match presser before the Foxes meet Middlesbrough?
After home defeat to Leeds United, Leicester must immediately get back on track. The Championship is a notoriously tough division that can be extremely awkward to escape from. Even huge clubs have gone down and not re-emerged for many years. Hopefully the Foxes will re-enter the EPL ready for the 2024/25 campaign.
Middlesbrough, the next opponents for Leicester, are beatable. They have actually already lost on six occasions this season. However, Boro are a threat on their day, having won an equal amount of games this term. Ahead of playing Michael Carrick’s men, Maresca spoke to the media. Of the north east outfit, the latter said he considers them a ‘good team’. The Italian is concerned with his upcoming opponents’ form.
Other topics covered included his Manager of the Month award for October. In addition to that, the coming international break was talked about. He also mentioned the loss to Leeds and the mentality going forward. Not to mention the Leicester squad’s fitness.
