Jamie Vardy Offered Premier League Contract Post Leicester City Promotion | Football

Enzo Maresca voiced support for Jamie Vardy’s continuation at Leicester City for another attempt at the Premier League. The former England striker displayed his prowess on Monday, netting twice in Leicester’s 3-0 victory over Preston, securing their return to the top flight as champions.

Despite being 37 years old and facing an expiring contract, Vardy expressed his desire to continue playing. Maresca, impressed by Vardy’s 18 league goals this season, expressed his desire to retain him for the upcoming season, emphasizing Vardy’s integral role in the team’s success.

Maresca described Vardy as synonymous with Leicester, highlighting his innate ability to score goals, a trait he believes Vardy will maintain even into his later years. Expressing optimism about Vardy’s future with the club, Maresca hinted at a potential contract extension, expressing his inclination towards retaining the prolific striker.

Maresca’s tenure as Leicester manager has been marked by a remarkable resurgence following the club’s relegation the previous season. Their promotion was sealed after Leeds United’s loss to QPR, with Leicester now aiming to reach 100 points in their final game against Blackburn.

Reflecting on their achievement, Maresca expressed immense satisfaction, attributing their success to consistent performances throughout the demanding Championship season. Despite the celebratory atmosphere, Maresca emphasized the importance of maintaining focus for their upcoming match against Blackburn.

Vardy’s brace, along with Kasey McAteer’s goal, secured a comfortable win over Preston, prompting praise from opposing manager Ryan Lowe, who acknowledged Leicester’s superiority and emphasized the need for his team to improve defensively against such formidable opponents.
