"Jamie drinks pints and only eats pizza" - De Laet on Vardy’s diet

The ex-Leicester player talked about his time at the Premier League side as he recalled the bizarre eating habits of his former teammates.

According to

Ritchie De Laet


Jamie Vardy

’s celebrations with

Leicester City

involved a lot of pint drinking and eating pizza admitting that Vardy and Marcin Wasilewski did a lot of “weird stuff”.

De Laet, who is currently a part

Royal Antwerp

’s squad, talked about Vardy’s eating habits, telling

Het Nieuwsblad


“The night before a game, Jamie drinks pints and only eats pizza.”

“For example, when he beat Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s record by scoring in 11 consecutive games; the night before, the bus driver bought us a bottle of port. We hid it in our hotel room.”

“I had a glass, and Jamie made sure to finish the rest of the bottle.”

In an interview with

Men’s Health

, Vardy also talked about his diet, saying:

"With a traditional 3pm Saturday kick-off, I'll have a can of Red Bull as soon as I wake up, which is gone in 30 seconds."

"I don't have breakfast and won't eat anything until I have a cheese and ham omelette with baked beans at 11.30am. I wash that down with another Red Bull, which I also neck quickly.”

"We get into the dressing room an hour and a half before kick-off, and I'll have a third can of Red Bull straight away."

Alongside Vardy’s odd diet, which seems to have played a major role in his beyond 200 career goals record, De Laet also recalled a time when he and Wasilewski went to a restaurant, adding:

"Marcin was really a very nice person. Unusual, but nice. The kind of guy you laugh with, but who does weird stuff."

"I remember going to eat with him in a very fancy restaurant. All of a sudden, he grabs his glass and literally bites into it, without flinching. He had pieces of glass all over the place, looks at me, and starts laughing. I didn't understand it at all. "
