Leicester City: Fans are saying that Soyuncu is better than Maguire

Many Leicester fans are saying on Twitter that Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu is better than the man he replaced in Harry Maguire.

The Foxes have gotten off to a flying start in the Premier League, sitting third in the league after four games, with Soyuncu starting every league game at centre-half this campaign.

The Leicester Twitter account posted a video of the defender showing excellent skill versus Bournemouth, turning and beating attackers while in his own third and sending a few slick passes.

Soyuncu was bought by the club in the summer of 2018 from Freiburg for a sum believed to be around £19m, which may have seemed like a lot of money at the time for a player who didn’t feature a lot in his first season (via Transfermarkt). However, the money paid then now looks to be very shrewd as Leicester have not been forced to reinvest the £80m they received for Maguire.

Leicester fans can’t get enough of the 23-year-old at the moment, and that was reflected in fan responses to the video.

Here are some of the replies…
