Jamie Vardy: I knew Arsenal will fall, and no regret turning them down


Jamie Vardy

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy insists he has no regrets over turning down a dream move to Arsenal. The Gunners came calling for Vardy last summer after he’d spearheaded Leicester’s unlikely march to the title under Claudio Ranieri.

However, the 30-year-old opted to snub Arsene Wenger’s advances and stayed with the Foxes for their debut Champions League campaign.

He said: “I want to win as much as possible, I don’t want to only have one Premier League medal in my drawer at home – it would be an empty glass cabinet.

“I want to win as much as possible. I’m contracted to Leicester and we will see how high we can go. In the future, who knows?

“It was my choice to turn Arsenal down. But if another offer came in, it would be the same in that I would look at it and work out the pros and cons. But, no, turning down Arsenal doesn’t mean I wouldn’t look at another offer.”

Jamie Vardy also said that he predicted Arsenal’s downfall, despite their FA Cup win last year.

Saying he has no regrets, Vardy said: “I’ll never regret anything I’ve chosen to do. I’m a bit of a psychic, I could see the little downfall they are on now.

“They had qualified for the Champions League for the last 20 years until last year. That was something to think about.

“But there were all sorts of reasons. Football was the main thing, but moving the family when I’d just bought a house would have been a laugh – not.”
