Jannik Vestergaard lasted 11 minutes in his return to action in the U.21 clash vs. Man Utd. Danish media today describe it all as difficult with the rest of the season out for the Danish international.
His situation at Leicester is a bit odd, as he still have a year left on his contract and has turned down possible moves to Fulham and Hertha Berlin. A tall defender is one that has seen his chances limited, but still not ready to move on himself.
The change of management was something that had to be seen as help for Vestergaard, but Dean Smith has not yet responded to other things than letting Jannik again train with the team, must be seen as a step forward, but now injury has striked and his time under Dean Smith will most likely end in zero.
Leicester do have a number of defenders in front of Jannik Vestergaard in the pecking order, surely giving Faes, Souttar, Evans and Soyuncu a vote even Amartey is in front, and then your time should be up, so why not move on when you have the chance.
Leicester will be without Jannik Vestergaard and Harvey Barnes for the game vs. Wolves, and it also comes to early for Ryan Bertrand who also returned to action vs. Man Utd played an hour before being taken off.
An interview in Danish press made by Vestergaard, made Leicester manager at the time Brendan Rodgers sanction Jannik Vestergaard, and not let him train with the other players, something Dean Smith overlooked and at least gave Vestergaard a chance to return to the squad.
His move from Southanpton has not worked out at all, and so far played 10 league games in almost two seasons. He has also been given the opportunity to play in EFL Cup.
