Club director convinced Leicester player to leave this summer

After Leicester City was relegated from the Premier League, it seemed inevitable that they would lose several of their finest players, and so it proved.

James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, and Harvey Barnes all left, as did Boubakary Soumare, who was recruited on loan by Sevilla on deadline day.

All four may be kicking themselves for wanting to walk away from the Foxes, given how well they’ve begun the 2023/24 Championship season.

With four victories and one loss in their first five games, Enzo Maresca’s side is just a point behind leaders Preston North End and third on goal difference behind Ipswich.

Leicester have to be one of the favourites for promotion towards the conclusion of the season after playing some eye-catching football.

Soumare will remain in Seville, evidently eager to repay club director Victor Orta’s faith in him.

According to AS (via Sport Witness), the player was enticed by the Andalusian club’s project.

“I can only say positive things about Leicester, even though we were relegated as a team.” In many ways, I have grown and evolved in England. “Now I’m hoping to do even better here,” he told the site.

“Victor Orta persuaded me to join the project, which is what attracts other footballers.” And I’m going to do everything I can to justify arriving.”

Though one may appreciate players’ decisions to move on at various phases of their careers, jumping ship in a club’s hour of need suggests that they have little, if any, loyalty these days.
