Big call.

Johnny Evans was better than Harry Maguire last season, that's the view of arguably the most recognisable Leicester City fan.

Lee Chappy, better known for looking exactly like Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, spoke to Love Sport Breakfast this morning.

Speaking about Harry Maguire's record breaking £80m move to Manchester United, Chappy told Richard Lee and Patrick Christys:

 

"Based on last season, our £3m Johnny Evans played better than him [Harry Maguire].

"We’re going to miss him because he was a great asset to the club, fantastic player, great with the youngsters.

"But £80m? I’d have put him in the back of my car myself."

Chappy also made the point that Leicester City are building a new £100m training complex, aiming to offer the club's stars a state-of-the art facility that would rival any major club in England.

Well, Maguire's United move has basically paid for that, another good reason to usher him out of the door, according to the Vardy lookalike. 

He also spoke about new signings Youri Tielemans and Perez, saying the latter, a former Newcastle attacker, could be the best person to start getting Kelechi Iheanacho on the scoresheet more often.

A good transfer window for Leicester, but how has your club done?

Call in to Love Sport Breakfast tomorrow and tell Rich and Patrick your thoughts - 02087020558.
