Vardy claims that Leicester surviving relegation would be a bigger achievement than winning the Premier League

Jamie Vardy thinks that Leicester staying in the Premier League would be a more significant accomplishment than winning the league title, which they achieved in 2015-2016.

Jamie Vardy, who played a crucial role in Leicester’s remarkable Premier League triumph in the 2015-16 season by scoring 24 goals under Claudio Ranieri, now finds himself in a completely different situation.

The Foxes are battling to avoid relegation this season and are currently in 18th place in the Premier League table, just two points from safety with only three games remaining.

As a result, Vardy believes that ensuring Leicester’s survival this season will be a greater accomplishment than their famous title win, making it the most significant achievement of his career.

“I think at this moment in time it would be the biggest achievement. That’s how important it is,” the 36-year-old said, speaking to TalkSPORT radio.

“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. I love this club. It’s hurting me on a personal level a real lot. 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,” he stated.

Vardy apologizes for not scoring enough

Vardy has faced difficulties in scoring goals regularly, and he had gone 19 games without scoring before hitting the net in back-to-back games against Leeds and Everton. When questioned about the reasons behind Leicester’s current position, Vardy appeared at a loss for words.

“No, I really can’t. I think if you ask 99 per cent of people they couldn’t have seen this happening. It’s been tough trying to work out the whys and what’s gone on to get us to be in this situation, you can’t put your finger on it. I can’t put my finger on it myself, it’s been really tough. I’m a striker, all I want to do is score goals and help the team. It’s not happened this year for whatever the reason may be.

“But it is the situation that we’re in and we’ve got to stand up and be counted for and make sure that we’re doing everything we possibly can to pick up as many points as we can in these last three games to give us a chance,” he added.
