Schmeichel went to Nice “oily”, spoke personally with the president and did not respect the discipline

After missing the first Ligue 1 game of the season for Nice, Kasper Schmeichel kept the next six, but was left on the bench again last weekend. It turns out that the 35-year-old Danish guard has serious problems in France, which started since his transfer from Leicester in the summer.

According to “RMC Sport”, Schmeichel arrived in Nice with a seriously elevated percentage of subcutaneous fat, after which the problems with his discipline began.

The publication also writes that Schmeichel and his agents personally sought out the owner of the Riviera club, Jim Ratcliffe, to guarantee him a starting spot in the first round.

However, this did not sit well with head coach Lucien Favre, who anchored the Dane on the bench for the game against Toulouse at the expense of Marcin Bulka, who is playing on loan from PSG.

The French media also wrote that Schmeichel was late for training and team meetings, did not comply with the schedule for mandatory days off at the club and violated all kinds of rules.

Nice has created a mini colony of former and current Premier League players. In addition to Schmeichel, Ross Barkley and Aaron Ramsey were brought in as free agents, while Nicolas Pepe, Mads Bech Sørensen and Joey Bryan arrived on loan from Arsenal, Brentford and Fulham respectively.
