Jamie Vardy has spoken about how he felt relieved to score twice to reach his century of goals for the club last weekend.

Talking to LCFC TV, as reported by Leicester Mercury, Vardy said:

“It’s a great feeling. Obviously, we didn’t know at the start if it was 98 or 99, so I think it’s a good job I put the two in!”

“I’m just like any striker. You want to obviously score as many as possible and pick up points for your team. I’ll just keep doing that. I’ll just keep knuckling down and like I say, hopefully more goals will come.”

“That’s the main thing you want, you want to be scoring goals and picking up points for the Club. It’s a Club where I’ve been since 2012, so long may that continue.”

Rodgers allays fears of long-term Vardy injury.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Jamie Vardy should be okay following his injury against Watford at the weekend. Vardy was taken off in the second-half after he went down off the ball near the half-way line, with medical staff treating him on the pitch. Rodgers has come out and allayed fears of a long-term injury, by claiming that he should be fine in the coming days. Leicester conceded in stoppage time to lose 2-1 to Watford in Rodgers’ first game, but Vardy had levelled the scores with a fine finish from Youri Tielemans’ through ball.
