Alan Shearer urges Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to stop sulking

The former England international striker Alan Shearer has offered some advice to Leicester City star striker Jamie Vardy, according to the Sun.

The BBC Sport pundit has urged Vardy to to stop sulking and work harder to end his goal drought.

Vardy has failed to find the back of the net in his past seven games. Meanwhile, Shearer said he was alarmed at Vardy’s body language during Leicester City’s 3-0 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.

“Jamie is going through a goal drought and is not going to get out of it by sulking, because that is what he looks like he is doing at the minute,” Shearer told The Sun.

“He is not doing what he did last season and causing defenders enough problems. He makes it easy for them.

“There is a lack of effort there. You have to work hard to get to the top, but you have to work even harder to stay there.

“It was an astonishing achievement by Leicester to win the title last season but what a contrast this season.”

The England international played a key role in Leicester City’s Premier League title win last season with 24 goals in 38 games. However, Vardy has managed just two assists and three goals in 12 appearances for Leicester his season.

Leicester take on København in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday evening before hosting Crystal Palace at the King Power stadium this weekend.

Claudio Ranieri’s side currently find themselves in eight place in the Premier League with eight points after eight games.
