Now he’s under contract and he’s got to live with it. He took the easy option and if he thinks he can just sit and wait for a top club to come along in the summer, he might be in for a shock.
Who would take him now? Seriously? Who would give him £150,000 a week, knowing he could do this all over again? If he starts performing again, everyone will forget about it in a few months.
His team-mates should be all right. They know the score and they know they need him. He has walked back in and if he starts playing well, all will be forgiven very quickly.
I won Player of the Year at Aston Villa once and I didn’t get in the team until November. He can still have a good end to the season.
They’re not getting relegated but I do feel sorry for the manager, because it could hurt their season and he can’t really do anything about it.
I still think Leicester could win the FA Cup. They should be really going for it and having Mahrez back will give them a much better chance.
