Jamie Vardy has set the English Premier League ablaze with his brilliant performance for Leicester City this season. He’s in a good form now and he deserves 100% of the credits given to him from the fans and supporters.
Currently there is no doubt that he Vardy is the best Premier League striker and he is having an excellent season. The 28-year old England striker can can now set his sights on reaching the highest Level in football both on individual and team basis.
He is on course to be the season’s highest scoring player as he has broken the record kept by United and Netherlands legend Ruud Van Nistelrooy, after he scored in 11 consecutive games. He is also in a real chance to get on the probable list of the next year’s Balon d’Or shortlists if he continues with the same determination he showed in the past few months.
And again Balon d’Or is a FIFA accolade, the recognition given for the best player in the World by football governing body which is corrupt from head to toe. There is politics involved, lobbying involved and it is always going to be someone from Barcelona or Real Madrid and probably someone from Bayern Munich may come close.
First things first for Vardy as he may immediately target a place in England national team for the Euro 2016 finals in France. If Roy Hodgson picks his team based of player form, we may see Vardy partnering Kane in France, just pushing Rooney out for a place in the bench.
Jamie Vardy has attracted the interest of several top clubs in Europe following his brilliant start of the current Premier League season. Chelsea and Manchester United seemed to be the front runners while clubs like Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also linked to the 28-year-Old English striker.
Despite being hugely linked with many top clubs, Jamie Vardy has openly admitted he is not leaving Leicester city, and he is happy staying at King Power Stadium and believes the future has enough in bag for him and the foxes.
“Yes, Leicester match my ambitions,” he said. “I think the gaffer has come in and told the owners what he wants to do, and he wants to keep progressing.”
“He wants to progress on what we did last year and then, in the years to come, he wants to keep us going up and up and up.”
But also re-collecting what the Sports pundit Richard Keys said at the weekend “it is a matter of when not if Vardy leaves.”
Leicester City are currently second on the Premier League table after 14 games and Vardy still has three years remaining in his contract as he only four year deal at the beginning of last season.
It is only half way through the season and it is still a long way to go and Leicester City are awaiting tough tests in December and many expect them to crumble in those fixtures. But to be very honest, Vardy’s run to break the record has been very exciting to watch and many may still so far.
