Jamie Vardy: ‘From a relegation scrap to lifting the trophy – IT’S UNBELIEVABLE’

first_imgJamie Vardy was left stunned as Leicester City became the first new top-flight champions in 38 years by clinching the Premier League title on Monday.The trophy will be heading to the King Power Stadium after rivals Tottenham could only draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.It means the Foxes are champions with two games still to play, with the team set to lift the silverware after Saturday’s home meeting with Everton, where Vardy will be back in action after sitting out a ban.It’s been a fairy-tale ride for the 29-year-old, who began his senior career at Stocksbridge Park Steels after being rejected by Sheffield Wednesday as a teenager and was playing non-league football for Fleetwood as recently as 2012.He has gone on to score 24 goals for club and country this season and claimed the Football Writers’ Association player of the year award on Sunday.But the title has capped a remarkable campaign and his rise to international fame.“It’s an unbelievable feeling,” said Vardy. “I’ve never known anything like it. We were scrapping to stay in the league last season and on Saturday we’ll be lifting the trophy.“That gives you an idea of how much hard work has gone into this season from every single player and member of staff.“It’s the biggest achievement in the history of a great club and we all feel privileged to be part of it.“It’s even more special to have done it with these lads. Every minute of hard work we’ve put in on the training pitch has been worth it for this moment.”Leicester have gone to Manchester City and Tottenham and won, while an unbeaten run since mid-February proved beyond any doubt Ranieri’s side had the nerve to finish the job.Midfielder Andy King, who has spent his entire career with Leicester, admits the size of the achievement could take some time to sink in.“I thought I’d seen everything with this club, but I never thought I’d see this,” said the 27-year-old. “It’s difficult to put into words. The players deserve it, the gaffer and the staff deserve it, and the fans deserve it. It’s been an unbelievable season.” 1 Jamie Vardy has netted 24 goals for club and country this season last_img read more

Middlesbrough 0-1 Watford: Jose Holebas wondergoal wins Hornets three points

first_img1 Jose Holebas’ excellent goal was enough for Watford to beat Middlesbrough A wonderful Jose Holebas goal was enough for Watford to beat Middlesbrough and move into the top half of the Premier League table.The Greek wing-back struck a superb second-half strike from just outside the area which secured the Hornets all three points in a match lacking in any other moments of quality.It was an intense start to the game, Deeney failing to get a shot off after fighting through the Boro defence, and Downing firing over for the hosts.Gaston Ramirez also flashed a strike wide, as Boro started to show their dominance – a Behrami header was a rare chance for the Hornets.The match died down heading to the 20 minute mark, with a lack of quality at either end of the pitch preventing any real chances; a dismissed Negredo penalty shout the only action of note.Downing and Gibson struck strikes wide, before Barragan – already booked for a foul on Success – was lucky to avoid a red card after scything down the Nigerian attacker a second time.It was a clear yellow card, but the referee decided against sending off the Spanish defender just half an hour in.Negredo – a constant menace to the Watford defence – recorded the first shot on target four minutes before the break, but his weak strike on the turn was right at Gomes in goal.The half ended with that as the only test either goalkeeper had to face, but both teams had a right to feel aggrieved at the standard of the refereeing.The second period started in the manner the first ended; both teams were breaking well, but a lack of quality in the final third was seriously bringing down the game.Forshaw managed a long-range attempt easily saved, Stuani flashed wide from just outside the area, and Success went down in the area – with nothing given.But in the same move in which the winger went down, the Hornets finally took the lead – with their first shot on target.The ball was cleared after Success went down, finding its way to Holebas on the left just outside the area.The Greek wing-back charged forward, before firing off a shot which curled away from Valdes into the top left-hand corner of the net.It was 1-0 to the visitors, and the goal appeared to calm Mazzarri’s men, who started passing the ball round in a much more composed manner than seen earlier in the game.Boro were still only recording half-chances, with Gomes never properly tested, and Watford managed the next clear chance, with Success firing a powerful strike held well by Valdes.A number of hopeful crosses were sent into the Hornets’ penalty area, but Gomes did more than enough to deal with everything he faced, securing a hard-fought win for the Hertfordshire side.last_img read more
