Foxes banish Vestergaar­d


JaNNiK VeSteRGaaR­d is training alone after being asked to stay away from the Leicester first-team squad following an interview in which he was critical of boss Brendan Rodgers.

the denmark defender, who has not started a Premier League game since January 2022 after joining from Southampto­n the previous summer, has made only three appearance­s this season.

Now it is thought he is working with a fitness coach on a separate pitch from his colleagues.

in an interview with danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet published on march 1, Vestergaar­d said: ‘Brendan Rodgers and the club knew exactly which player they were buying with both my strengths and weaknesses, and it’s hard to understand that from one moment to the next i’m suddenly unusable. it feels strange.’

Rodgers said yesterday: ‘i’ll not talk too much on it as it was an unauthoris­ed interview. He said he didn’t know why. i had to make sure i wasn’t talking to his twin brother, because i’ve been very clear on his position.’
