Vardy Sets Sights on Historic 100-Point Season Following Leicester’s Championship Victory

Jamie Vardy, the striker for Leicester City, has set a new challenge for his teammates – to hit the 100-point milestone after clinching the Championship title with a game to spare.

The Foxes made it back to the Premier League without playing a match when Leeds United suffered a 4-0 loss to QPR on Friday. However, they still needed a victory on Monday to secure the top position.

Enzo Maresca’s team easily won 3-0 against Preston, thanks to Vardy’s two goals and Kasey McAteer’s header, taking them to 97 points.

Now, with a final achievement in sight, Vardy is determined to end the season on a high note after an already successful campaign.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Vardy said, “We can enjoy the victory tonight, but our next goal is to reach 100 points. The journey has been quick but filled with hard work. We barely had any breaks, to be honest.”

“The team has put in their all. It’s well-deserved, and having 5000 fans celebrate with us means a lot. It’s not like they just popped over for a short trip.”

Leicester had struggled with just three wins in nine league games from mid-February to April, but they have now won their last three matches in a row.

Maresca commended his players for their dedication during what he described as a challenging season.

“It has been an incredible season. The Championship is grueling, but I’m thrilled with how things have turned out,” Maresca said.

“Now, it’s time to relish the rewards of the season and guide this exceptional club back to the Premier League. We have earned it.”

“The last two days have been remarkable. Despite the promotion, preparing for the game was tough. However, we utilized every minute today to get ready for the match, from morning to afternoon. It paid off.”
