Praet staying?

Praet spent last season on loan in Serie A with Torino, pushing for a move away from City because of his lack of game-time at the end of the previous campaign. While in Italy, he said he was no longer happy at the King Power Stadium, and felt he had been “treated somewhat unfairly”, with Rodgers not providing an explanation over his lack of minutes.

But it seems those bridges have been rebuilt. Rodgers has now suggested Praet will feature regularly this season, either as a starter or as somebody who the manager knows he can turn to as an influential substitute.

“He's very much a part of what we’re doing,” Rodgers said. “I’ve been delighted with Dennis. I pulled him and had a chat with him Friday morning to tell him how well he’s done over pre-season.

“I think my notion when he came back, when we spoke in Evian, was that he was maybe one who wanted to move on and play, because he was in that situation before. But he’s come back reinvigorated and really wants to be here at the club, which is great, and over the course of the pre-season, he’s looked strong, he’s looked fit and he’s done very well in the games.

“I think he’s a real bonus for us that he wants to stay and compete for a place in the team. If he doesn’t play, I know I’ve got someone on the bench to come into the game, but I’m pretty sure he will end up having a really good season for us.”

Very positive.

I hope this is genuine from Rodgers, and he really means it. We'll find out over the coming months.

I will be surprised if he doesn't stay. We will likely need him, as for sure one of Tielemans or Maddison will leave. I will be surprised if Chelsea cough up 70-80mil for Fofana, when they can likely get him cheaper in 2023.

He's a gem, fuck knows why he was binned last Season to Italian football, very clever very skilful footballer.
His trouble is he is quietly effective strolls through a game un-noticed but the eye and skill is superb, you watch him does not do flair stuff, Ive watched him closely he looks unhurried, picks his pass and he's gone like a ghost

He is why I had doubts over Brendan.
