Kasper Schmeichel could leave Nice this summer after 'annoying' his teammates in training
| Last updated
Kasper Schmeichel could leave Nice less than a year after joining the club from Leicester City, according to stunning reports.
He's played 43 games in all competitions this season, including 33 appearances in Ligue 1 as the French side sit in ninth place in the table.
But his time in France could come to an end this summer, with reports claiming his teammates are growing frustrated with his methods.
L'Equipe claim his 'a la carte' training schedule and lack of leadership are angering players and staff at Nice.
Just like his time at Leicester, the 36-year-old's career allows him to manage himself and he prefers solitary work rather than being part of the team training sessions.
Schmeichel's approach to training has raised tension at Nice, with players believing he has pushed it too far and that he fails to motivate the group despite his wealth of experience.
Despite the goalkeeper's unconventional style, only Lens have conceded fewer goals than Nice this season. They have conceded 34 goals, which means they have a better defence statistically than league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Marcin Bulka, the club's back-up keeper, has been sidelined through injury. His relationship with Schmeichel has broken down, with one of them expected to leave in the summer.
Bulka could either leave on a loan deal or Nice could part ways with Schmeichel, who has another two years left to run on his current contract.
Schmeichel enjoyed a brilliant 11-year stint at the King Power Stadium, notably winning the league title in 2016.
He's also spent time at Manchester City, Leeds United and Notts County, among other clubs.
