Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy feels they’ll continue to improve under Brendan Rodgers as they become more exposed to his ideas.
The Foxes lost their first game under Rodgers, who replaced Claude Puel in February, but have since gone on to win four on the bounce, including Saturday’s 4-1 win at relegated Huddersfield.
The result lifted Leicester to seventh in the Premier League table but Vardy, who netted a brace against the Terriers, says there is much more to come as they continue to learn from the former Celtic and Liverpool boss. “There’s still work to be done,” Vardy said. “It’s early days.
We’re showing signs of improving and we want to keep going and obviously make sure performances are consistent.
“The manager has got us playing now the way he wants us to play. It’s benefiting each and every one of us and I think you can see that. “We’ll keep working hard at it and keep putting the time and effort in on the training field to take it into the game.
“He’s getting his ideas across and everyone’s buying into it and putting the effort in to make sure we’re playing the exact way he wants.”
Vardy has notched seven goals in his last six matches to equal Gary Lineker’s goalscoring feats for the Midlands club.
He wants a flying finish to the season and is seemingly relishing playing for his new boss. “Hopefully there’s more to come and we know that’s only going to happen by putting more hard work on the training field first,” he added.
Leicester are 1.75 to beat Newcastle at King Power Stadium on Friday. The Magpies are 4.75 while the draw is 3.80.
