Jamie Vardy has spoken about how he felt relieved to score twice to reach his century of goals for the club last weekend.

Before the game, there was uncertainty about whether the former England international was on 98 or 99 league goals – with the confusion coming down to goals scored in a Community Shield game, which isn’t officially a competitive fixture.

The confusion over whether Vardy needed one or two goals to hit the magic number confused even the player himself, who was glad to remove all doubt by scoring twice against Fulham.

Talking to LCFC TV, as reported by Leicester Mercury, Vardy said:

It’s a great feeling. Obviously, we didn’t know at the start if it was 98 or 99, so I think it’s a good job I put the two in!

I’m just like any striker. You want to obviously score as many as possible and pick up points for your team. I’ll just keep doing that. I’ll just keep knuckling down and like I say, hopefully more goals will come.

That’s the main thing you want, you want to be scoring goals and picking up points for the Club. It’s a Club where I’ve been since 2012, so long may that continue.
