Vladimir Petković requests Gokhen Inler to get into Leicester City

Gokhen Inler was signed by Leicester City for a fee of £3 million back on August of 2015, unfortunately for the 31 year old player; he has never truly managed to secure a starting role spot in the Premier League club.

Ever since Inler joined the Premier League outfit, he has had to spend the majority of the season as an unused substitute. The Swiss player does not play any influential role in the club and this might become a problem for Gokhen Inler if he wants to perform for his national team.

Vladimir Petkovic is the head coach of Switzerland and he stated that in order for Gokhen Inler to get a call up, he will have to prove his worth by snatching a starting role spot in Leicester City.

Switzerland recently played friendly matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Republic of Ireland and Gokhen Inler did not appear in any of these games. Vladimir Petkovic spoke about the reasoning of his decision to drop Inler as the 52 year old Bosnian manager said:

Swiss Coach Gets Presents From Rival Teams

One of the advantages of Switzerland hosting friendly matches is that the coach gets presents from the visitor teams.

That’s what happened on 29th March 2016. Though the friendly match played between Switzerland and Bosnia did not end in favor of the host, the beginning was definitely sweet.

Vladimir Petkovic did a great job by getting Switzerland into the Euro 2016

Former Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic did a great job by getting Switzerland into the Euro 2016. He has been rewarded for this fine job with a new contract from the Swiss FA.

The extension signed by the manager will see him stay as national team coach until 2017. This will cover most of the qualifying matches for the World Cup 2018. The manager, however, will receive a straightforward extension if he manages to get the national team into the World Cup 2018 as well.
