Jamie Vardy delighted with new style

Leicester City striker Jamie Vary says he is loving the club’s new high-pressing style under manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes got back to winning ways last weekend as they beat Fulham 3-1 at home at King Power Stadium. Vardy grabbed a brace during the game to take his tally to 100 for the club.

The former England international has now scored five times in as many outings for City and he is now part of an elite club of players to reach that feat.

While just six have achieved it, Vardy insists the team’s fortunes mean more to him. Rodgers’ men will now be looking to kick on in the Premier League and they face Burnley this weekend, before further games against Bournemouth, Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and West Ham United.

When asked about his team’s fortunes, Vardy told the club’s official website: “It’s great but the main thing was getting the three points today.

“We had a proper full week of the new manager’s training and I think that showed with what we put in out there.

“He wants it at a high-tempo with a quick press, trying to win the ball back as quick as possible, and if you win it high up you’re going to get lots of chances.

“It has definitely benefited me but we all know there is a lot more hard work to come and that starts when we get back on the training field and we’re looking forward to next week.”
