I Have No Regret Snubbing Arsenal – Jamie Vardy
By Ikechukwu Azunna
Jamie Vardy believes Leicester’s Champions League adventure, coupled with the Gunners’ struggles, have vindicated his decision to turn down Arsenal even though he missed out on an FA Cup winners’ medal as a result if his decision.
Vardy did turn down an offer to join Arsenal after leading the attack that saw Leicester make history by winning the title during the 2015/16 Premier League season.
Although he doesn’t regret his decision, Vardy admits he might act differently if another big offer arrived.
“I want to win as much as possible, I don’t want to only have one Premier League medal in my drawer at home – it would be an empty glass cabinet.”
Vardy said. “I’m contracted to Leicester and we will see how high we can go. In the future, who knows?” Vardy told BT Sports.
He added: “Just because I turned down Arsenal, that was my choice, but if another offer came in it would be the same in that I would look at it and work out the pros and cons. But no, turning down Arsenal doesn’t mean I wouldn’t look at another offer.”
