Claudio Ranieri Confirms Leicester Star Needs Operation

Claudio Ranieri Confirms Leicester Star Needs Operation

Leicester City may have picked up their first victory of the season, with a 2-1 victory over Swansea City, this afternoon, but the three points came at a cost, with manager Claudio Ranieri confirming in a post-match interview that goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will require an operation after being forced off in the second half with an injury.

Schmeichel was replaced on the hour mark by substitute 'keeper Ron-Robert Zieler and Ranieri explained that the Danish shot stopper will undergo surgery for a hernia. Speaking to The Leicester Mercury, Ranieri said:

"He played in the last month with a little hernia. Monday he will have an operation."
