Jannik Vestergaard: Leicester City star banned from first team for criticising Brendan Rodgers

  • Vestergaard has endured a frustrating spell at Leicester City since he joined them from Southampton
  • The 30-year-old has found playing time hard to come by under Brendan Rodgers this season
  • Vestergaard has managed just three Premier League appearances so far this term

Leicester City star Jannik Vestergaard has reportedly been banished from the first-team training for criticising club manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes have had a mixed run of form this season under Rodgers, with the King Power Stadium-based outfit currently two points above the relegation zone.

Rodgers had led Leicester to just seven wins this season, with 13 of their last 25 games ending in defeats.

Vestergaard's lamentations come at a time he has failed to nail a starting place under the former Liverpool boss.

The ex-Southampton ace has been limited to just three appearances so far this season.

The 30-year-old recently opened up about his struggles at the King Power Stadium saying:

"I really felt wanted by Brendan Rodgers. While I was at Southampton, he really convinced me that I should switch to Leicester."
"It's hard to understand that from one moment to the next I'm suddenly unusable. It feels strange, I must admit," he added.
