Gokhan Inler feeling sick at Leicester City

Leicester City may well be enjoying one of the most remarkable seasons in the history of the Premier League, but one man is not happy with life at the club. 

That man is Switzerland international Gokhan Inler, who has endured a tricky campaign at the King Power Stadium. 

The 31-year-old, who departed Italian outfit Napoli in favour of a move to the Premier League table-toppers in the summer, has only featured for the club on five occasions in England's elite division.

In fact, Inler still hasn't completed a full 90 minutes for the Foxes in the Premier League all season long and hasn't featured in the division since December 29. 

Ultimately, then, it's not entirely surprising that he has grown frustrated at the club and he has admitted that he had several enquiries to leave in the January transfer window. 

Revered coach Claudio Ranieri told him that he would still have a role to play for the club this season, but that hasn't transpired as the season approaches its latter stages. 

Inler is sick 

"I had several enquiries in January, but didn't leave as the manager said that he was counting on me," Inler told reporters, as per

"But there have been no more games for me since then. It makes me sick, and the stupid thing for me is that I have the Euro 2016 finals with Switzerland this summer.

"I am in a critical situation. I usually speak diplomatically, but I have to face up to why things are the way they are.

"There is no point in me trying to sugar-coat the situation.

"I said no to West Ham, Sunderland and Schalke to join Leicester, and I would do the same again.

"I won't run away and give up on the club’s project. I wanted a challenge, and I have got one for sure."

Struggles at Leicester 

You can certainly understand Inler's frustrations, but no one would have anticipated that the players in front of him would have been so consistently excellent for such a lengthy period. 

With Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante performing admirably in the middle of the park, it's unlikely that Inler will be able to establish himself as a leading player for the Foxes anytime soon. 

Despite a tricky season, the midfielder may well take comfort in knowing that he could become a Premier League title winner in the immediate future. 

As it stands, Leicester lead north London outfit Tottenham by five points and will believe that they can secure the prestigious prize.
