‘Like a new wap sbobet signing’ are four words most often used to mask a lack of transfer activity: “We know we haven’t spent anything but Johnny Johnson will be just like a new signing.” Except Johnny is never anything like a new signing as you remember exactly why he was sent out on loan in the first place. You would have preferred an actual new signing with a shiny new name and you will absolutely not be fooled by such transparent nonsense.
But there was no need for such smoke and mirrors from Leicester, who quietly spent over £100m in the transfer window on seven players, only two of whom started on Saturday as the Foxes won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since March. And yet it was not the tricky James Maddison or the unpredictable Ricardo Pereira who caught the eye but defensive midfielder Nampalys Mendy, the forgotten man of Leicester who really does deserve the billing of ‘like a new signing’. Two years after Leicester signed the Frenchman to replace wap sbobet the energy and intelligence of N’Golo Kante, he is finally doing a damn fine impression.
When Claude Puel reached deep into his squad to pick Mendy against Wolves last week, it had been 19 months since he had last played in the Premier League. On that occasion he had been hooked at half-time at St Mary’s with Leicester on their way to an abject 3-0 defeat. Mendy then played 90 minutes in FA Cup defeat to Millwall before succumbing to injury once again; by the time he was approaching fitness, his mentor Ranieri had been sacked. An unconvinced Craig Shakespeare sent him back to Nice on loan and Mendy’s name was seemingly consigned to a list of disastrous club-record signings along with Ahmed Musa and Islam Slimani. He had played in four Premier League games and not won a single one. wap sbobet
