Jamie Vardy aims to become Arsenal’s all-time nemesis on Saturday with Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers insisting the forward could have played for all of England’s best clubs.

If Vardy scores, he will tie Wayne Rooney for 12th in the Premier League against the Gunners, whom he turned down a chance to join in the summer of 2016 after Leicester won the title.

The 34-year-old has recovered from a knee ailment in time for the game and has started the campaign spectacularly with seven goals.

“Sometimes players have the feeling that if you are not working in the elite clubs, you may not be at that level,” Rodgers said.

But there is no doubt that Jamie Vardy could have played for any major team in this country and Arsenal are one of those iconic clubs. There is no denying that Jamie is an elite player, even though he hasn’t played for any of the so-called big six.

“He had the opportunity to do it and decided to stay for football and family reasons. You can’t beat him for it.

‘He is a brilliant player and has consistently shown it against the best teams, the teams in the middle of the league, and the teams at the bottom of the league.

“He has scored at all levels and fortunately that meant he stayed here and continued the incredible career that he has had.”

Leicester’s form with Rodgers – they finished fifth in each of the last two seasons and are the FA Cup champions – has drawn admiring glances since arriving from Celtic in February 2019.

He was on Newcastle’s roster after the £ 305 million takeover backed by Saudi Arabia and is believed to have a following within the Manchester United hierarchy as well should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leave.

“I don’t even think about it,” he said. That is brutal honesty. I am sure that the fans and the people in general will tire.

“If you are in Leicester, there is always a bond, always a partnership, but my focus is always here in Leicester, where we are trying to develop this football club to the next level, competing for European football and challenging for honors.”
