Schmeichel backs Joe Hart



Leicester City keeper Kasper Schmeichel says he does not believe it is healthy to have two number one goalkeepers at a club after England number one Joe Hart was replaced as Manchester City keeper by new signing Willy Caballero in the Community Shield on Sunday.

"Absolutely no disrespect to Willy, I've seen him play for Malaga and he's a very good keeper, but I've also worked with Joe Hart for a number of years and there's no question for me who's the best goalkeeper," he said.

"You look at situations like Courtois and Cech at Chelsea, two of the best goalkeepers in the world at the same club and one of them's going to be unhappy, which I don't think is healthy.

"I think it's good when a manager names his goalkeeper and backs him. That's the sort of thing you want as a goalkeeper. You want to know you've got the backing of the manager and you're not one mistake away from getting dropped. I think that's a better scenario for most keepers."
