​Schmeichel sends emotional message to Leicester supporters

Leicester City shot stopper Kasper Schmeichel has sent an emotional farewell message to the club’s supporters.

The 35-year-old is leaving the club after 11 years as their no.1 keeper.

Schmeichel, who even won the Premier League with Leicester, will play for Nice in France.

Schmeichel posted a video on social media, along with the text: “After 11 incredible seasons, the time has come to move on.

“It’s been more than just a club to me, it’s been a place where I’ve made lifelong friends and memories – it has been my home. Thank you for your unwavering support – you are what makes this club so special.”

In the video, Schmeichel said: “Hello everybody. Today is a very strange day for me. Today is the day my Leicester City career comes to an end, and a new chapter begins – a new chapter that I’m incredibly excited about.

“I just want to take this time to say a few words – to say thank you, most of all, to everybody at Leicester City – to all the fans, your support through the years has been incredible, and I’m so grateful, so thankful.

“I came to Leicester as a young man who was in need of a home. I needed a bit of love, I’d been around a lot of clubs and I needed somewhere I could call home.

“You embraced me, you took me into your hearts and I’m just so happy and so proud to have played for Leicester, to have captained Leicester, to have been part of the great history of this great club.

“So to all the fans, thank you so much. It has really meant the world to me.

“To Khun Top, Khun Vichai and the entire family… family, that’s what you guys are to me and I am incredibly grateful for everything you’ve done for me and my family.

“This isn’t a goodbye, this is farewell, see you soon. I’m sure we’ll see each other soon. But again, thank you so much for everything you’ve done.”
