Kasper Schmeichel has no ill-feeling towards Leeds despite being pilloried on his way out of the club.

The Danish shot-stopper, who is the son of Manchester United legend Peter, severed ties with the Whites last week after completing a £1.2million move to Leicester.

Leeds opted to move him on after it became apparent that he would not be agreeing a new deal at Elland Road.

Things turned nasty as a war of words ensued, with Whites boss Simon Grayson telling Schmeichel that he was not good enough to be his number one.

Leeds chairman Ken Bates then got in on the act by claiming that the 24-year-old would be 'no great loss'.

Schmeichel could be forgiven for bearing a grudge against the Yorkshire club after being blasted so publicly, but he insists the events of the recent past have already been forgotten.


He said: "There is no animosity on my part. I enjoyed my time there and wish them all the best for the future.

"I have no bad feelings towards Leeds.

"The fans were amazing and I hope, for their sake especially, that they get what they deserve."

Having completed a switch to the ambitious Foxes, Schmeichel is now looking forward to working under former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

He added: "Sven is a great manager, and I love working for him. He creates a great environment."
