Premier League forward apologises for racist comments, saves England career, in light of Thai racist orgy

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy has sought out a person he racially insulted as he seeks to save his England career.

The 28-year-old was filmed in a casino, making a pejorative comment, and was subsequently fined by his club.

The news came as a PR nightmare for Leicester, in light of a pre-season controversy when three young players were sacked after being filmed taking part in a racist orgy in Thailand.

The incident also indirectly cost manager Nigel Pearson his job, with the coach (whose son was involved in the sex-tape controversy) sacked soon afterwards.

Vardy’s incident also jeopardised his nascent international career.

However, the forward looks to have saved his Three Lions future after seeking out the person he offended and making a personal apology [Express].

In light of his apology, Vardy has been included in the England squad to face San Marino and Switzerland in upcoming fixtures.
