Jamie Vardy: "I'm fully pumped up"

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy reveals that he is "fully pumped up" after a successful groin operation.

Leicester City frontman Jamie Vardy has revealed that he is "fully pumped up" after an operation on his groin.

The 29-year-old broke the record for consecutive Premier League games with a goal earlier this season, but then embarked upon a barren spell of seven games as he battled a recurring injury in his groin area.

"You go through a spell where you don't score but thankfully I've scored a goal," said Vardy, who netted his 16th of the season in a 3-0 win over Stoke City last weekend.

"It's just one of those things that happens to strikers. It was well-documented that I had to have an operation and I was playing with pain-killing injections. But I could have literally gone straight back into training after my operation.

"I think this is the best my groin has felt. It was just a case of the pain from the operation which made me sit out a few training sessions, but other than that I'm fully pumped up and ready to go."

Leicester, who are currently sit three points clear at top of the table, are next back in action when they welcome Liverpool to the King Power on February 2.
