Leeds keeper Schmeichel: Man City experience was horrible

Kasper Schmeichel has branded his time at Manchester City as "horrible".

The Dane is now preparing for the Championship kickoff with Leeds United.

Schmeichel told the People: "I had some hard times at Manchester City and that gave me a lot of time to mature and reflect on what was going on in my career.

"It was horrible. It was a bad time, but I turned it into something positive. I had to.

"The manager decided on a change and that was his prerogative. All I could do was accept it, get on with it and make sure I pushed Joe Hart as hard as I could and supported him as well as I could for the team.

"I am not one to whinge and say it should have been me or it should have been this way.

"Joe is a good friend of mine and I think he has done brilliantly. I am very happy for him but from a personal point of view it made me realise I had to work even harder to get where I want to be."
