boss Brendan Rodgers has expressed hope that Jamie Vardy will return to action soon, but assured that his side will perform well without the main striker.

Vardy eventually underwent surgery due to a hernia problem and will probably not be able to accompany his team for a few weeks. Vardy has not scored in his last 5 games and this may have influenced their decision to schedule surgery. The English striker, who has scored 11 goals in the Premier League this season, will not be able to accompany his team in the upcoming games, and now Rogers has expressed hope that he will return to the field as soon as possible.

“After his operation there was a timeline on it. He’s a little bit sore as you’d expect but we hope he’s a quick healer and he’ll be back soon,” said


“There is a lot made when Jamie doesn’t play, he’s one of the best in the league, but our development as a team is about the collective.

“We have scored 53 goals over the course of the season so far: Jamie has 13 and 40 of our goals have come from other people.

“He’s a big miss, of course he is. You’ll see in the games that Vardy hasn’t scored in, we’ve won five and drawn two. We can’t be reliant on one player.

“Barnsey (Harvey Barnes), Madders (James Maddison), Youri (Tielemans) are chipping in. Ayo (Ayoze Perez) I know will score goals.”
