Bednar 'won't return' to Baggies

BY foxsports • November 25, 2010

Bednar agreed a switch to the Foxes on Wednesday and has joined the Championship outfit until January. The 27-year-old believes that he has lost the support of Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo and will therefore not make a Hawthorns comeback. "Once the (West Brom) manager let me go, my vision is not to return to West Bromwich. I don't feel confidence in me from him anymore," he told CTK. "At the moment I just want to be happy and play regularly. I think I have made the right decision. "This loan has been settled so that I don't warm the bench. I will be doing my best and believe I will gain ground at Leicester." The Foxes are currently 17th the Championship but Bednar believes Sven-Goran Eriksson's side are capable of better things. "The team is of a high quality and, in my opinion, should be somewhere else in the table," he added. On his Swedish manager, he remarked: "I have decided for Leicester not only because of the manager but also because it takes me just 45 minutes to get there from my home, so I don't need to move. "In the worst case I will be spending the nights ahead of games in a hotel. "He is a high-quality manager who has a great record of teams he has coached previously. "After a long time I enjoyed a training session with a smile on my face." Bednar will have stern competition with Darius Vassell, Martyn Waghorn, Matty Fryatt and Steve Howard also attacking options. He said: "I know all of them. I consider them high-quality forwards but am not afraid of competition. "It's good for me but, as I said before, I've not moved to Leicester to just warm the bench."
