The Danish goalkeeper directly helped Leicester City avoid a negative result against The Kop.
Leicester City unexpectedly won in the reception to Liverpool last night, and of course the first must belong to Kasper Schmeichel – who successfully saved Mohamed Salah’s penalty. Speaking after the game, the Danish star shared (quoted by Onefootball):
“This is an important win, very important. To get a second half against [Manchester] City the way we did, and then put on a performance like last with both feet and mind. If you’re tired, the team deserves praise.”
We want to try to have the ball, but in games against teams like Man City and Liverpool, there will be periods when you don’t have the ball. And you need to be a threat on the counter-attack.”
“We just need to rest and move on, the key is stability, we haven’t found it yet. We are working very hard in every aspect. Today we have a bit of luck, hopefully. , that might get us on the hook.”
“Not at all,” replied Schmeichel when asked if there was any research on how Mohamed Salah took the penalty kick in the past.
“I had a feeling, and I listened to it. The last time I saved a penalty at King Power, the ball bounced off and they still scored. Sometimes you need a little luck. We did it. Didn’t have that against Man City, but today did.”
