Leicester boss Puel hails 'fantastic' Vardy quality

Leicester City boss Claude Puel admits he loves working with Jamie Vardy.

Vardy heads into the FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea this weekend in scintillating form, with six goals in his last eight games in all competitions.

“I hope he can cause them problems," said Puel. “He is a great player. He likes to give positive opportunities for the team by playing behind the lines.

“He fights always and it is always difficult to defend against him because he has this fighting spirit to win battles and make good runs.

“He is also a technical player. He can make fantastic move with his touch.

“We can remember his last goal against West Brom it was fantastic. Not many players can score with this quality. It was a tough goal. Sometimes I am surprised also with the quality of Jamie."
