Jamie Vardy’s incredible Leicester City career

In the aftermath of Leicester City’s dramatic 2021 FA Cup final triumph, Jamie Vardy inadvertently made himself the centre of attention.

Partway through an interview the Foxes striker bounded away from the cameras to join his teammates, who were huddled in a circle ready to start the celebrations. It was only right that the rest of the squad hung around for a player who has done so much for the club since joining from Fleetwood Town in 2012.

Reflecting his career and life, Vardy’s time at Leicester has been a struggle at times, making the highpoints – and my word, have there been a few – that much more intoxicating.

Although the evergreen goal-getter shows no signs of slowing up, his 35th birthday is as good a time as any to look back on his storied career. Happy birthday Mr Vardy.
