Leicester boss says it’s too early for Vardy-Neymar comparisons

Jamie Vardy is having the season of his life.

Nine goals in the opening nine Premier League games are as many as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have managed between them.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has had a part to play in the England man’s success, but he doesn’t want people to get carried away.


“It’s too early to talk about Vardy along with Neymar,” Ranieri said.

“I hope he can improve. If he can continue it’ll be fantastic.”

Too right, Claudio. Neymar’s still only 23, and he’s certainly on track to match the former Fleetwood forward’s levels. We just need to give him time.
