Released Leicester City centre back Patrick Kisnorbo has spoken out after the disappointment of failing to earn a new contract at the Walkers Stadium.
The defender told the Leicester Mercury, ''Just tell the fans I didn't want to go. I'm very disappointed to have been released. I thought I was still good enough for the team, but the gaffer said he had other plans.It's sad. He said he has got his own players and I have to respect that decision - it's his choice.'
The defender, 28, was voted City's player of the year twice in his four year tenure with the club since joining from Hearts in 2005. After first experiencing a torrid time as a central midfielder, the player moved to centre back, where his performances earnt him hit status amongst the Walkers faithful.
However, since a cruciate ligament injury against Sheffield Wednesday at the tail end of Leicester's relegation season in 07/08, Kisnorbo has fallen down to fifth choice in Nigel Pearson's pecking order, behind Aleksander Tunchev, Jack Hobbs, Michael Morrison and Wayen Brown.
It is harsh some would say, for a player who is now attracting the interest of Crystal Palace and Ipswich if media reports are anything to do by.
We here at Vital Leicester are almost certain that Patrick Kisnorbo will be lining up against the Foxes this coming season, and will no doubt receive the warm reception he deserves on his return.
