​Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is growing increasingly frustrated that even now, people are still comparing him to his father - former Manchester United stopper Peter.

​​Kasper Schmeichel, 29, has been in imperious form for Leicester City this season as the Foxes unexpectedly sit at the top of the table, two points clear of second placed Arsenal, and Schmeichel's form has gone under the radar due to the heroics of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.


However, not everyone has been oblivious to his form and while Leicester remain in the spotlight, Schmeichel has to put up with comparisons in person whenever people meet him out and about.


Speaking to the ​Daily Mail, Schmeichel opened up about his frustrations at constantly being told he will never be as good as his dad, and how he can't grasp why people can't let the comparisons go.

"It's getting worse and worse every month," Schmeichel claimed. 


"I thought it would get better. I don't know why. For some reason, people are more interested in it than ever...


"It's been no help whatsoever in my career. It's been quite the opposite, I feel. I think I would have played longer in the Premier League if that wasn't the case. The issue is that I am 29, I am married, I have two kids, but people still see me as someone's son. They still see me as a child."

As well as keeping goal for Leicester, Schmeichel is also first choice Denmark stopper, but unfortunately for him he won't be going to Euro 2016 as Denmark failed to qualify, losing 4-3 on aggregate to Sweden in the play-offs.


In regards to domestic matters, Leicester City will go up against Everton at Goodison Park in their next Premier League match.
