“Escaping relegation would be my ‘biggest’ achievement”- Jamie Vardy

Leicester City forward, Jamie Vardy, has stated that avoiding relegation with the team would be the greatest accomplishment of his career which has already seen him win the Premier League and FA Cup.

Leicester have spent most of the season in the relegation zone and currently sits in 18th place with only three games remaining. The battle to stay in the top-flight will be on until the final day of the season, with only three points separating Leicester, Leeds, Everton, and Nottingham Forest.

Vardy has been a vital player for Leicester since their promotion to the Premier League in 2014 and played a significant role in their unbelievable title win two years later. However, he struggled for game time under Brendan Rodgers earlier this season as the team struggled for form but has seen more minutes since the departure of the Northern Irish manager.

“I think at this moment in time it would be the biggest achievement”, Vardy told talkSPORT.

“That’s how important it is”.

“It’s hard and I don’t think hurting is actually a strong enough word for personally how I’m feeling as a person, being here that long”.

“Being on all the ups and downs throughout all of the time that I’ve been here, I’ve never wanted to see us be in a situation like that again so to be where we are, it’s hard to take”.

“We can’t do anything about what’s gone on, it’s gone now. We can’t change results from games that have gone, we know, we’ve got three games left now and we need to pick up points – it’s that simple”.

“I love this club. It’s hurting me on a personal level a real lot,’ he shared. ‘I’ve got to be one that stands up and be accounted for. I’ve got to give my upmost and try to help the team as much as possible”.
