Jamie Vardy has stated that Leicester City’s stunning season so far will count for nothing if they miss out on a Champions League place.
The Foxes are third in the Premier League despite failing to win their last four games and Vardy says they have to make sure they are playing at Europe’s top table next season to have deserve full praise.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Leicester star said:
“Nothing counts until you finish. We had that good start, but we’ve had a little blip.
“In a different year we might not be third and we’d be fighting to get back up there.
“To be third, it’s a good start, but we know we’ve got to finish the job off.
“The margins are getting closer slowly but surely. Anyone can beat anyone in every single game.”
Vardy also added:
“If we knew what the reason was we’d be trying to mend it. We put the effort in in training every single day.
“We know we have to train how we want to play. Everyone is working as hard as they can on the training field.
“It’s a little mental block which is the reason we’re not starting that way in games. I wasn’t involved (in the defeat) at Norwich.
“I was at home on the recovery machines. Not nice watching. We could have got something but that’s football.”
Brendan Rodger’s side are back to action this Monday, as they are set to welcome Aston Villa and Vardy is confirmed to be playing after missing the last two games with a calf injury.
