“I have chosen not to communicate during this transfer window, despite all the criticism and all the often false and misleading remarks, even if they came from the club. I understood and I learned.
“I didn’t want to damage the image of the institution and chose to take it rather than answer it. I thank Top (Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha) for his understanding, thanks to the managers, to the coach who has always appreciated me even though he chose to expose me a lot lately… I got it coach.

‘Thank you to all the people who work here every day, you are the soul of this club! Finally, thanks to my teammates, my brothers, the Foxes soldiers. We’ll meet again, on a soccer field or elsewhere #PourEux #lcfc #LaWestt.’

He added: “For me it’s always about the dedication and when the players are ready to commit to the team’s ethos (they can return),” Rodgers said.
He’s not available this weekend. He has trained with our Under 21’s. It was a challenge for Wesley. If you’re not in the right mood, we have to move on.’
“To be honest with Harry, in terms of his behavior and his focus for the club, he was fantastic right up to the last minute.
“It’s different for Wesley. He is a younger player, and perhaps under various pressures behind the scenes. Wesley is a really good lad and has been great to us during his time here. We have to see how the next period goes.’
