Brendan Rodgers hails Jamie Vardy as one of the best strikers in world football

It has been over a month since football was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, with a decision yet to be made on how the 2019/20 season will be concluded.

For Leicester, they are on the cusp of a return to the Champions League – currently in third place – and Rodgers discussed this and much more in his appearance on The Football Show with Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville and Kelly Cates.

The Foxes’ boss spoke mainly on star striker Jamie Vardy, while also praising him as one of the best in the business right now.

“Before I came in, I was watching him from afar and seeing him maintain that real quality that he has as a goalscorer and I was really looking forward to working with him when I arrived. I was seeing the quality in the games, but it was going to be interesting to see how he was on a day-to-day basis,” Rodgers said.

“But he is right up there with the elite strikers in world football, how he threatens the line and his explosive speed over a short distance is absolutely phenomenal. He is very focused; he is in his early 30s now but he’s still as quick as ever.”

“He has an appetite for the game and he’s got that old school mentality where he wants to fight, he wants to run and his whole attitude to the game has been absolutely brilliant since I came in. He’s a natural goalscorer, if you get the service to him, he will finish,” he concluded.
