Youri Tielemans denies saying farewell to Leicester fans after lap of honour

Youri Tielemans denies he was saying farewell to Leicester City fans during an end of season lap of honour.

Tielemans has moved to clear up any confusion over his post-match actions following the Tottenham game.

“Apparently it had been agreed to make a lap of honour with the team. Only: I didn't know anything about it. When I saw my teammates walk in, I didn't understand it..." he is quoted as saying by journalist Kristoff Terreur.

“Afterwards it turned out that they were just gathering inside, but I thought at that point: what a shame for the fans.

"Just when they were allowed back in the stadium and we had the chance to give them something back.

"I decided to go and applaud them on my own.

“It was all a big misunderstanding."
