07 Apr Brendan Rodgers salutes Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy
The Foxes favorite contains six Premier League goals in five matches under his new supervisor, who commended the striker’s mindset
Brendan Rodgers saluted”famished” Jamie Vardy following the Leicester City striker netted a brace in a 4-1 win over Huddersfield Town to overtake club good Gary Lineker within their scoring graph.
Ahead of Rodgers’ coming at the club near the end of February, Vardy had suffered an inconsistent time, together with Claude Puel’s strategies doing little to help.
However, after scoring a double on Saturday, the former England international has six Premier League goals in five matches under Leicester director Rodgers.
His moment against the Terriers transferred him up to sixth at the club all-time scoring graph with 104, over former City, England, Tottenham and Barcelona celebrity Lineker.
And Rodgers paid tribute to Vardy for this particular accomplishment, praising his attitude and want.
“Gary was clearly a top-class striker for several decades, but it has been a true joy to use Jamie, I believe from the very first day I met him once I joined,” Rodgers told me.

“He is very eager to improve and get better, and clearly the fashion of this team and also the belief of this team consistently helps him.
“You are pressing on the sport difficult once you haven’t obtained it [the ball] and you are creating chances.
“He is among the very best in this league, he has already known that, but he has revealed the desire to continue with this.”
Already-relegated Huddersfield were no fit for Leicester and director Jan Siewert admitted the gap between his team and people staying in the top-flight is a lack of decisiveness in the front of goal.

“First of all, I must state that the credit out of our side to Leicester, since they were far more clinical than we had been,” he advised Town’s official site.
“We tried everything, and it is precisely the caliber from the Premier League I’d say.
“From the scenario where they have a 50/50 opportunity, they evaluate, we want too many chances to score ”
