The Swiss manager Vladimir Petkovic has been overlooking those players who are the bench warmers at the clubs they are at and he is very clear he will continue with that policy even if it means he has to drop the skipper or whoever.
Petkovic recently did not select Gokhan Inler for the friendly matches that Switzerland played around Easter in spite of him being the official skipper of the national team.
According to Petkovic, dropping the captain who has got 89 caps is obviously hard, but, it’s about a player who has not been playing enough no. of games and if there is a policy regarding the team selection, it needs to be implemented on everyone in equal capacity.
Petkovic, however, has refused to close the door on the 31-year old centre half for the Euros and has said he will be welcomed back into the team if earns his place in Leicester’s XI again.
The fact is that a fair bit of the season has passed by and there is just 8 weeks of Football left in the Premiership now and as far as Leicester is concerned, they are totally settled, comfortably placed at no. 1 in the standings.
With a decent lead, they are dreaming of lifting the League trophy and this is surely not the time of experimentation for them.
It would be surprising if there is too much of chop and change for Leicester at this moment in time in their starting XI unless and until a severe injury forces someone of the first choice players out for several games.
So, to be realistic, Inler is not looking like getting a bunch of 5-6 games and thus, he might well have to watch the Euros from home.
