Man Utd boss Mourinho admits Vardy admiration: He's the best at...

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits he's a big fan of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

Vardy was largely ineffective in defeat at United and Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri withdrew the striker at half-time with their Champions League tie against FC Porto in mind. And before Leicester's win last night, the United boss warned his former club to be wary of the threat Vardy possesses on the break.

“They're a very dangerous team in counter-attacks and Vardy is the best counter-attacking player in English football," Mourinho told Portuguese media.

“FC Porto shouldn't think Leicester are what they've done against Manchester. It's nothing like that.

“Leicester are a good team and Porto will have to play very well to beat them."
