Sampdoria midfielder Silva: Puel never gave me chance at Leicester

Sampdoria midfielder Adrien Silva has admitted frustration over his time with Leicester City.

Silva made 21 appearances for Leicester over three years.

"I decided to measure myself in a more competitive championship and chose the Premier," he said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Ranieri wanted me at Leicester, who had just won the championship, but it didn't work out.

“Maybe I could have done more mentally, but the problem was not the delay of a few seconds with which my contract was deposited, and forced me to wait until January before taking the field, or my adaptability to English football.

“The problem was that in the meantime Ranieri had been replaced by Puel, and Puel has never looked at me. I can accept that not everyone likes me, but then you have to let me be free to go, and for two years he hasn't. I missed a few trains."
