Today the news that TCF had hoped for arrived in the gossip column and it might be the ideal happening for both Kasper Schmeichel and Leicester City, split up and move on.
Kasper and his father Peter have often been seen together at Old Trafford to watch games when that’s been possible and the two are devoted Manchester United fans and of course great friends of current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
No one doubts Kasper’s qualities but it’s a time for everything and at the age of 33 he could be in an ideal spot and a move to a new challenge would probably be something he would look at with excitement.
Leicester City would probably be able to get a reasonable fee for him as well, and of course get one of their best paid players of their wage bill.
The fact that Leicester City have an understudy goalkeeper with international experience and qualities worth £12,5million, should see the club in “good hands”. Danny Ward came in from Liverpool two years ago and is close to Kasper in qualities and still only 27 years of age. He has yet to play a single PL game for Leicester City, but has been in great from in cup games for the club.
Danny Ward represents Wales and has 7 caps so far, and also known for a great 2016/17 season helping Huddersfield Town to promotion to the Premier League, being on loan with The Terriers.
With another Dane, Daniel Iversen, also at the clubs disposal, no need to stress the goalkeeper situation at Leicester City. Eldin Jakupovic who has been the number three choice last season is on an outgoing contract, also of Premier League quality, so we will see what Brendan Rodgers will do?
We have seen some fantastic goalkeepers at Leicester City and Kasper will always be one regarded among the best alongside names such as Gordon Banks, Peter Shilton, Mark Wallington, Kasey Keller, Tim Flowers and Ian Walker.
TCF have stressed the matter of a change to happen after those fatal mistakes done by Kasper in the games against Bournemouth and Man Utd.
