Leicester signing Schmeichel bears no grudges against Leeds pair Grayson, Bates

Kasper Schmeichel insists he holds no grudge against Leeds United boss Simon Grayson nor chairman Ken Bates.

Kasper Schmeichel insists he holds no grudge against Leeds United boss Simon Grayson nor chairman Ken Bates.

The Danish international ­keeper, son of former ­Manchester United legend Peter, joined Leicester City in a £1.2million switch from the Yorkshire outfit last week after being virtually hounded out of Elland Road.

Schmeichel, 24, was humiliated by Grayson, who told him he wasn’t good enough to be his No.1 next season after conceding 70 goals last term.

Then Blaster Bates got in on the act by accusing the former ­Manchester City and Notts ­County stopper of using Leeds as a stepping stone and sneering: “I don’t see him as any great loss.”

But Schmeichel insisted: “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.”

Schmeichel now cannot wait to start playing again for Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

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