Brendan Rodgers’ men came up short in their bid to finish in the top four for the second consecutive year as Chelsea grabbed the last Champions League spot despite their 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa.
Supporters were understandably gutted at narrowly missing out on qualification for UEFA’s flagship competition once again, but they were worried about something else at full-time.
Tielemans took the time to go around the King Power Stadium by himself, applauding the fans during a lap of honour.
The Belgian midfielder has yet to agree a new contract with the Foxes and reports have linked with him with a move to Manchester United in the summer.
And Leicester fans thought it was a sure sign the 24-year-old was saying farewell to them and will be leaving the club in the upcoming window.
@ SamLCFC98 said: “Tieleman’s crying and doing a lap around the pitch on his own clapping and waving to fans. Please don’t leave Youri.”
@ StuartHoward_ added: “I really hope he stays. I will be bitter if he leaves for another prem team. Please god, stay.”
@ Sam_Langley49 tweeted: “It very much felt like he was saying goodbye.”
@ lcfcJohnn said: “He’s definitely gone with the way he is acting tonight.”
@ lcfclewis tweeted: “He was defo saying goodbye.”
@ GlynnOG added: “Really hope he is here next season.”
Tielemans has been a huge success in the Premier League since his move from Monaco was made permanent in 2019 after a brilliant initial loan spell with the Foxes.
He’s enjoyed an impressive season and will go down in Leicester history books as he scored the winning goal to secure their first-ever FA Cup.
