Leicester City star James Maddison looked to have deactivated his Twitter account following a costly mistake he made in his club’s 1-0 loss against Bournemouth.
The Foxes battled with the Cherries in a relegation six-pointer at the King Power Stadium on Saturday with the two sides running down on matches to keep their place in the English Premier League.
However, it was Bournemouth who took a massive step in their push to remain in the Premier League via a 40th minute goal from Phillip Billing.
Though it was Billing who scored to drag Leicester into the relegation zone, Maddison made a costly mistake after teeing up the Bournemouth midfielder with a mistimed back pass.
Why James Maddison Deactivated His Twitter Page?
The Englishman, who has been rumored to be on his way out of the side, has come under intense criticism on social media after individuals dug up an old tweet he put out at the beginning of March.
James Maddison stressed that Leicester City would be “absolutely fine” if they continued playing how they had played against Southampton in spite of the fact that they lost the 3 points in that game.
It now looks like Maddison has deleted his social media account after the loss on Saturday, which he acknowledged left him feeling “very low”.
The Leicester City midfielder speaking after the game against Bournemouth said the defeat was “really a tough one to take”
The Englishman speaking to BBC’s Match of the Day after the encounter which sunk Leicester City into 19th position on the Premier League table and in danger of relegation said:
“It was a really tough one to take. I am very low at the moment. We knew it was a big game and didn’t try and dress it up as anything else.
“We’ve worked really hard. I made a sloppy mistake and it cost us. I am very low. I’m always hungry to do well for the team. I tried to erase it and not do too much to make up for it. It wasn’t to be today. It is a sore one.
“I am very low and sad in defeat because my mistake sort of cost the team. We have to dust ourselves down and go again. I’ll be sad tonight and probably tomorrow but we’ll get going again on Monday.
“It is so important we stay positive. We’ll try and rally the troops. I apologise to the fans for today, I thought they were brilliant. It is not brilliant for us in terms of results and performances aren’t quite there at the moment but it is important the fans stick with us.
“There is still a long way to go. It is tight down there. I would have preferred to win today. It wasn’t a make or break. There is still plenty of points to play for.”
The Foxes have eight games to play till the expiration of the campaign but they have approved a deal with former Leeds coach, Jesse Marsh to become the team’s manager following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers last Sunday.
