Jamie Vardy to Undergo a Surgery
The 34-year-old Jamie Vardy has scored 11 goals so far in the ongoing English Premier League, and he has also helped the Foxes maintained the Champions League spot as they are firmly in the title race.
According to Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers, he said: “We’ve been managing him over the past few months.” “He can’t hold it off for much longer there’s a lot of time in the season for him to make an impact.”
Spanish star player Ayoze Perez and Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho will now fit in the shoes to replicate what Vardy was doing in the team.
The manager was asked how the team hope to cope without Jamie Vardy, Rodgers said: “We’ve played without Jamie before and scored and won.”
“He’s contributed to the team over these past few weeks even if he hasn’t scored.” “When you don’t have one of the top strikers in the league, it’s always going to be disappointing.
It’s not overly concerning, and it’s our best chance of getting him back.” “Perez is a natural striker. He doesn’t threaten the backline as quickly as Vardy, but he’s a great finisher. I’ve got Kels who can offer a threat too.”
