The most entertaining player in this season’s Premier league who scored in 11 consecutive matches breaking the record of Manchester United’s Ruud Van Nistelrooy. Vardy, the main man for Leicester this season joined the team in 2012 when the team was battling in the Championship (England’s second league) on a record fee of £1 million as a non-league player and the team managed to gain promotion in 2014. In the 2014-15 season, Vardy delivered a Man-Of-The- Match performance as the team defeated Manchester United after a surprise comeback from 3-1 down to 5-3 up.
Leicester City, currently sitting on the top of the table have the entire world at their feet. By January 2016, Vardy’s transfer value has gone up from £2.1 million to £18.8 million and the credit goes to his manager Claudio Ranieri who describes the striker as “Priceless”. Started from the bottom and was released by Sheffield Wednesday at the age of sixteen then played as a non-league player, is currently sitting second at the top of the scoring charts.
Vardy, a direct poacher who is dynamic and extremely fast, good in the air as well as capable of striking the ball with both feet is now wanted by Europe’s big guns.
