Mourinho thinks Vardy would succeed anywhere
Jose Mourinho believes the in-form Leicester City striker has the quality to be successful at any other club.
Record-breaker Vardy has dominated the Premier League this season, scoring 14 goals and breaking the record of scoring goals in the most consecutive Premier League games, in which he netted 11.
Mourinho said that the 28-year-old English striker could succeed anywhere, although his direct style would be tested.
“He is top scorer and it is normal that big clubs want him,” he said ahead of Chelsea’s trip to King Power Stadium on Monday.
“Even at a big club transitions are important, fast players are important, people to attack space behind defenders are important.
“Obviously in the big teams sometimes we face very low blocks where technical players to play in the box are very much needed, but I think a fast player with objective and being direct can have success everywhere.”
Mourinho said he expected Vardy’s record, which he earned with a goal against Manchester United in late November, to last.
The four-time England international surpassed the mark set by Manchester United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy.
“I don’t think next season someone will come and beat his record, it is not an easy one to do,” the Portuguese said.
