'Schmeichel did overhead kicks and took free kicks like Ronaldo!' - Ex-coach lauds Premier League-winning goalkeeper



The Leicester star is better with his feet than many think and loved playing outfield in training, his former coach tells Goal
Kasper Schmeichel's former goalkeeping coach, Kevin Hitchcock, says the Leicester City star is underrated, with the Dane possessing the ability to strike a ball as cleanly as Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Premier League title winner is flying high in the table again in 2019-20, with his Foxes side seemingly set to qualify for the Champions League again through a third-place finish after enjoying an impressive season under Brendan Rodgers.
Hitchcock now works at MLS outfit New England Revolution, but he was Mark Hughes' goalkeeping coach at Manchester City in 2008. Schmeichel was part of the first-team fold at the Etihad Stadium at that time, but found himself competing with long-term England No.1 goalkeeper Joe Hart and Ireland legend Shay Given
