Comments made by Peter Schmeichel over the weekend suggest his son Kasper is considering his future at Leicester City very carefully.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper committed himself to the club by signing a five-year deal in August last year, but doubts over the current manager could be at the heart of his rumoured dissatisfaction.

Speaking to BeIN Sports, the legendary ex-Manchester United goalkeeper said: ‘Leicester City are a really good football club.

‘They’ve got good players they just don’t have the manager who can get the best out of them.

‘Once they get everything sorted out — and I leave it to you to interpret what that means — you’ll see Leicester maybe in fifth to eighth place where they belong.

The current Denmark number one has been linked with Roma and Chelsea in the past and his father added: ‘Of course he wants to challenge himself like any other player.

But I don’t think he wants to go to Europe.

‘I think he loves England too much, I think he likes the Premier League too much, so it’s a difficult one.’
