Leicester City’s Victor Kristiansen has experienced a ‘hectic’ year, according to Ekstra Bladet.
The 20-year-old left FC Copenhagen to join the Foxes in January and he made 12 league appearances for the latter in the second half of last season.
Leicester were relegated from the Premier League last season and the left-back was allowed to join Bologna on loan in the summer window.
Enzo Maresca took charge of the club for this season and the report states the manager wanted to convert the Denmark international into a centre-back. This didn’t please the defender and help convinced him to make a temporary switch to Bologna.
“I noticed (the position change) when we were at training camp this summer, but missed being part of the offensive game. So I was happy that we could jointly find a solution,” he told Ekstra Bladet.
Prior to his move to England, he spent his time at Copenhagen. On his decision to move to Leicester, Kristiansen explained: “It has been hard. I probably experienced the hardest way to go abroad.
“I joined a dysfunctional team with a coach under pressure, who was then fired [in April]. I was in a difficult position as a young and newly acquired player, where I suddenly had to help save the club.
“I was alone and thought for a quiet moment if it is really like this to be abroad. It was hard to deal with, and it has left some scars on the soul. It was definitely not what I was hoping for when I went out. That’s why I was happy that this summer we could find a solution, so I was loaned out to Bologna.”
The Dane has made 10 appearances this season for the Serie A side, who have an option to make his stay permanent. The Leicester owned player remains hopeful that he can extend his stay at Bologna beyond this season.
“I have settled in very well at Bologna and hope that we will find a good solution next summer,” he added.
