He was on the verge of the record and he did it, Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record as he became the first player to score in 11 consecutive Premier League matches.Ruud’s record was for 10 consecutive matches which Vardy already met before their encounter with Man United.
Will Leicester be able to keep this record breaker in January? Rumours has it that at a price tag of 32M, Vardy could go and we have some clubs listening …
Raneiri had this to say about his talisman
Vardy’s record was “an incredible achievement”. “We had two objectives – to win the match and try to help Vardy break the record,” he said.
“Jamie made the record, it is fantastic for us. Five years ago he played in non-league, it is difficult to grow up so quickly and this fantastic man is not only our goalscorer but he presses, he works hard, he is important.”
And Yes, Ruud didnt let it slide by, he sent out his congratulations to the record breaker on twitter …. of course Jamie replied.
