Youri Tielemans has been fantastic for Leicester since arriving on loan from Monaco in January. He started life under Claude Puel superbly, but now he’s taken himself to another level with Brendan Rodgers at the helm.
There has been speculation over the Belgian’s future with Arsenal and Tottenham being revealed to be in the race to sign him this summer, according to The Daily Star.
However, after comments made by Gary Neville claiming the Foxes would struggle to hold onto the player, Leicester supporters have taken aim at the former Manchester United man. They were responding to a thread on Twitter after an article on the Leicester Mercury website.
One fan asked what the situation had to do with the Sky Pundit, whilst another told the former Man United man to not be such a misery.
A further supporter went as far as saying the pundit’s views were dinosaur thinking, slamming the remarks made by the ex-player on television last Sunday.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
What’s it got to do with him?

Gary Neville – a young man with dinosaur thinking! The order of things is changing. His beloved Man Utd may well finish lower than @LCFC next season – and based on results since BR arrived, they are already!

Yeah, well Gary Neville also thought we’d never win the premier league…

Love all these supposed experts commenting on something that they know little about, i.e., what is going on behind the scenes at Leicester. I know who is in the box seat for Youri’s signature and it resides somewhere in the East Midlands.

He went to Monaco, turning down big teams to develop. He’s gone on record as saying he doesn’t care about money and he will always sign for the club that is the best fit. We will likely get first refusal if Silva goes…
But sure Gary… You’re the “expert”
