EPL 2016-2017 : 5 choices for Leicester City captain this coming season


Kasper Schmeichel

The Foxes cruised to their first even Premier League trophy in the 2015-16 season in clinical fashion. This meteoric rise has put many of the Leicester stars in the spotlight with major European clubs chasing them. Although defender and captain Wes Morgan looks very unlikely to leave the club, it is a possibility you cannot rule out.

So here are the five players who Leicester could hand over the captain’s armband to, should Morgan leave.

Kasper Schmeichel

The Danish number one and son of legendary Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has played a vital role in Leicester’s successful rise from a second division team to the Premier League Champions. He kept 15 clean sheets, which was the second best in the 2015-16 season, in the process of helping Leicester make history winning the first ever top division trophy in their 132-year history.

Kasper’s leadership skills are no secret as the shot stopper serves as the vice-captain for the Foxes. He can be seen leading from behind, pushing the outfield players every time a goal is conceded or when there is a requirement of a goal. He also holds the record with his father as the only biological father-son duo ever to win the English Premier League
