Foxes star promises there is more to come

8th April 2019, 01:02 by Michael Holland

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy says there is more to come from him and the Foxes after he equalled Gary Lineker's goalscoring feats.

Vardy's two goals in Saturday's 4-1 win at relegated Huddersfield lifted him level with Lineker's total of 103, joint sixth on Leicester's all-time list.

The current Foxes forward thought he had surpassed Lineker's mark, but Leicester have not counted Vardy's goal against Manchester United in the 2016 Community Shield.

"I've just been told I overtook him?" Vardy said. "But 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.

"There's still work to be done. It's early days. We're showing signs of improving and we want to keep going and obviously make sure performances are consistent."

Vardy has hit top form under Brendan Rodgers, who replaced former boss Claude Puel at the end of February.

The England striker has notched seven goals in his last six matches, while Leicester's fourth straight win on Saturday lifted them up to seventh.

"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.

"It's been brilliant on the training field. 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."
