Signing Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City last summer, Leicester City have only used the Swiss goalkeeper four times since his arrival.
Currently the club’s third string, the 33-year-old is just having to sit around, watching Kasper Schmeichel week in, week out, while Danny Ward starts in the cups.
Speaking to Blick in his home country, the goalkeeper decided to vent his frustration a bit, since he’s really got nothing to lose at this point.
He said: “When I signed up a year ago, I knew it would be hard to get past Schmeichel. He’s a great goalie and a great guy, but they bought me so we could push each other. I’ve always done that.
“Now, this season, they signed Ward for a lot of money. The coach has decided he is his number two. Despite this, they didn’t let me go, even there were good offers.”
The reason for this is his relationship with Claude Puel, which isn’t the best.
As he puts it, ‘somehow the chemistry isn’t right’ between them.
Despite this, Jakupovic has got nothing against Leicester City: “The club, the teammates, the stadium, the president. They’re great. If I was playing, that would be perfect”.
Unfortunately, he knows there’s not a lot he can do to get out of this rut, at least not until January, and even then there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to leave.
He said: “I have another two years on my contract. At the moment, I have no choice but to live with this situation. Before, I would have raged, and then regretted it in hindsight”.
It’s also worth pointing out this interview won’t come as a shock to the Foxes, since the goalkeeper admits having voiced his displeasure within the club.
