Peter Schmeichel believes his son Kasper is open to a move away from Leicester as he looks to challenge himself further, but also revealed he thinks his son could achieve more at the King Power under a different manager.
Speaking to beIN Sports ahead of Leicester’s trip to Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, the former Manchester United ‘keeper dropped a hint that Leicester’s shot-stopper is looking for a move away, but only to another Premier League club.
However, Peter also believes Leicester is a “really good football club” for his son, but manager Claude Puel isn’t getting the best of his players.
Of course he wants to move away and try something bigger and challenge himself like any other football player. But on the other hand, Leicester City is a really good football club and once they get everything sorted out — and I leave it to you to interpret what that means — once they get their act together it’s actually not a bad club.
They’ve got good players they just don’t have the manager who can get the best out of them. Once they get that sorted out you’ll see Leicester maybe in that 5th to 8th place that I think they belong.
The 32-year-old has been a constant figure for Leicester following his move in 2011, playing a key role in their promotion to the top flight and in their historic Premier League title-winning season.
