Everton forward, Demarai Gray has said that he lost the love for football during the final six months of his stay at Leicester City, causing him to make “wrong decisions”.
Gray left Leicester City for Bayer Leverkusen in January, ending a five-year spell at the King Power Stadium but is now back to the Premier League with Everton.
The winger broke out of favour in Brendan Rodgers’s team and could not play his way even onto the bench.
He played just 18 minutes of Premier League football in his final half-season with Leicester City, in what was a tough period in his career.
The player admitted to having made some poor decisions during that time, saying, “It was very hard.”
Speaking further, the England star told Everton’s matchday programme that a time came when he got frustrated at Leicester City and “it got to the point where I lost the love for it.”
“It is a team game and I never want to cause any problems. My attitude is good. But if you are not being rewarded for training well, you ask yourself: ‘What’s the point?’
“I probably made the wrong decisions… but I don’t regret it, it is part of learning,” he added.
Gray vowed that if he ever finds himself in such a situation again, he will handle things differently by focusing on getting back in the team “not wasting time making the wrong decisions.”
