Leicester City boss hails Vardy after striker scores 100th Premier League goal

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy bagged his 100th and 101st Premier League goal after he bagged two goals for the Foxes in their first win after the restart. Leicester beat Crystal Palace 3-0 to bolster their fight for a top four spot in the league. After the game Brendan Rodgers hailed his forward.

“From the first moment I came here I told him I was happy he was here because he is a master finisher,” said Rodgers of his 33-year-old forward to the BBC. “Sometimes these milestones can weigh on you a little but it was only going to be a matter of time before he reached it.”

“You see the last goal, in the dying seconds of the game to get away – it is a good sign for us for the remainder of the season. And it is a phenomenal achievement – 101 goals, coming into the Premier League at the age that he has. I am very privileged to work with him.”
