In a surprise social media outburst, Argentinian Leonardo Ulloa has vowed never to play for Leicester again. The thirty year old tweeted:
“With all respect for LCFC fans. I feel betrayed by Raineri and let down by the club. I will not play again for them.”
Leicester recently rejected a £7million bid from Sunderland which is thought to be the source of Ulloa’s anger. According to the striker, Raineri is holding him back from rebuilding his career elsewhere.
Ulloa was first signed back in July 2014 for £8million. Since then, he has made just one start in the Premier League this term and has only scored one goal and still has 18 months left on his contract.
The footballer, who handed in his transfer request this month, told Sky: “The manager’s been telling me for the last two weeks that if an offer of around £4m to £5m was arriving to the club, he would help me to leave.
“My understanding at this moment is that these offers are around those figures or even bigger that are not being considered, so after what Ranieri has been telling me for weeks, today he tells me that he wants me to stay. I can’t understand the situation or why they don’t let me continue playing my football somewhere else. If I stay at the club, it’s going to affect seriously my career and my future.”
