City Keeper Wants Out

City Keeper Wants Out

Manchester City shot stopper Kasper Schmeichel has told his counterparts he wants out of Eastlands, with immediate effect.

The 21-year-old Dane is said to be furious after Blues previous boss, Sven Goran Eriksson, promised him the earth.

However, since he signed a new four-year deal Schmeichel hasn't had a look-in, spending the majority of his time sat on the subs bench.

"I want to leave — no question," Schmeichel said.

"It is heartbreaking every time you don't play and one year sitting on the bench would not be good for my development."

"I have been trying to leave for a while because last season, the week after I signed a contract, I was told I wasn't playing."

"Sven was telling me he wanted me to play and let me develop and every day he was asking me about my contract situation."

"But as soon as I signed the contract, when I got to the hotel before playing Newcastle away in September, I was told I wasn't playing."

"At the time I was playing and I had a good offer of a good contract but it might have been a mistake to sign for the four years."

"I have been told there is no chance of me leaving but I want to play first-team football."

Yet another badly advised young player in the Johnson mould. Start coming out for crosses and earning your place, Kasper. You are nowhere near the finished article.

A cliche is a cliche is a cliche, etc...but there can only be eleven players on the pitch. And agreed...he can always play first team in the championship.

He should consider himself a very lucky young man with a lucrative four year contract in his pocket. If he hadn't been given that he would be struggling to find a Division One Club at a fraction of what he is earning now. These kids make me smile they make one or two appearances and think they are gods gift to the Premiership, when will they grow up.
