Peter Schmeichel has suggested his son Kasper could quit Leicester – because Claude Puel can’t get the best out of him.

Leicester sit 12th, having lost five of their last six games in the Premier League and FA Cup.

Puel has come under heavy criticism for his dour, defensively-minded style of management, which is understood to have left the players uninspired.

Schmeichel, 32, is currently first choice at the King Power Stadium.

His father, the Manchester United legend, said: ”Leicester City are a really good football club.
