‘Load of rubbish’: Some Leeds fans slam claims of Leicester City star

It’s fair to say that Kasper Schmeichel didn’t exactly enjoy his time at Elland Road.

Kasper Schmeichel played 40 games for Leeds United during the 2010/11 campaign before joining Leicester City.

The Danish stopper has become a cult hero at the King Power Stadium, edging close to 400 appearances for the Foxes.

In a recent interview on Joe Hart’s Youtube series Gloved, Schmeichel revealed that his time at Elland Road wasn’t his most enjoyable.

He told Gloved: “It was a club where I wasn’t accepted and with my father’s history, it was evident among the fans that they didn’t approve of that.

“I just didn’t feel welcome at all, by the whole club, that’s the manager (Simon Grayson) as well. He didn’t give me any kind of confidence.”

These damning comments obviously make his short stint at Leeds all the more obvious. At the time he was an up-and-coming goalkeeper and his departure did come as something of a shock.

It is fair to say that Leeds supporters aren’t overly happy with Schmeichel in the aftermath of these latest comments.

There are very few clubs who boast supporters as passionate as the ones at Elland Road and they have taken to Twitter to voice their disapproval towards the Denmark number one.

We rounded up the best tweets in response to Schmeichel’s astonishing claims:
