Leaving Leicester City for OGC Nice, Kasper Schmeichel never managed to find happiness in the south of France, which is why he is now at Anderlecht.
He moved to Belgium this summer, and finally gave his first interview after joining the club, where he was asked a number of questions, including some about his time at the King Power Stadium.
Relayed by HLN, the goalkeeper talked about the many players who have crossed over from Anderlecht to Leicester, including now retired centre-back Marcin Wasilewski,
The 43-year-old spent four years with the Foxes between 2013 and 2017, and is now part of a growing list of footballers to have featured for both clubs, such as Dennis Praet and Youri Tielemans.
Schmeichel talked in depth about the former Poland international, and had nothing other than great things to say about him.
Asked if the player was still as ‘crazy’ as he used to be, the goalkeeper replied: “I wouldn’t call him crazy, he’s a great guy. An example for everyone, not just for the young players. I remember when he came on trial at Leicester, and from his first day, he immediately tackled one of the key players.
“The manager, Nigel Pearson, immediately gave him the yes. I have not seen a player as determined as Wasilewski in my career. He only has one gear: sixth.”
The defender went on to make 77 appearances for Leicester over the course of his time there, including 30 in the Premier League.
By contract, he featured 194 times for Anderlecht, where he scored 22 goals and assisted another 11, which is no mean feat considering he mainly played in the heart of their defence.
