Suffering an injury to his eye socket, Timothy Castagne was forced to wear a mask when playing football for a bit.
That’s now been taken off, which the defender is more than happy with, but the same can’t be said about how he feels about Leicester City’s form.
The Foxes, who narrowly missed out on Champions League football last season, currently find themselves 12th in the Premier League after 11 games, losing 2-0 to Arsenal and drawing 1-1 to Leeds United in their last two league games.
Throw in there a penalty win over Brighton and a 1-1 draw against Spartak Moscow in the Europa League, and their last outright success was a 2-1 victory over Brentford back on October 24th.
Now on international duty with Belgium, the Leicester man was interviewed by Le Soir, who asked him about the club’s form.
He replied: “We’re in a bit of a rut at the moment. We haven’t got the start of the season we wanted. We might do the reverse of the last few seasons, when we started strongly before ending badly. We’re not in a crisis but we need to string a few wins together to get ourselves back on track.
“We are making mistakes, and that impacts our confidence. I remember a match against Crystal Palace where we are winning 2-0, and we decide to stop the opponent for a whole half, but 45 minutes without really playing is long”.
Whether that’s a dig at Brendan Rodgers’ tactics, we’re not entirely sure, but it’s clear Castagne isn’t best pleased about how things are currently going at the King Power Stadium.
Hopefully for the Foxes, this international break is exactly what they needed, with a tough game against Chelsea to prepare for when they come back.
