Leicester star Vardy calls for focus

2nd April 2019, 12:56 by Gareth Freeman

Jamie Vardy says Leicester won't ease off in their remaining Premier League games this season.

The Foxes secured a third successive win under new boss Brendan Rodgers with a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend.

Vardy has been delighted with the progress made since Rodgers replaced Claude Puel at the end of February, but he says there is still plenty of work to do in their remaining games if they are to improve further.

"It's been great," he said, as reported by the club website. "Obviously with the pressing and the way we're moving the ball, everything's quick and fast.

"We've got to keep doing that so it's back to the training field, keep working hard, and obviously put the effort in for next week.

"We're just delighted that we've got the three points and everyone's happy, but like I say, it's a lot of hard work now to continue with this."

Leicester are currently eighth in the Premier League table and there is a chance they could qualify for next season's Europa League, as seventh place may earn a spot in qualifying for the tournament if Manchester City win the FA Cup.
