Claudio Ranieri: Jamie Vardy told me why he rejected a move to Arsenal to stay here


Playing the Champions League with Leicester City is one of the many reasons why Jamie Vardy said "no" to Arsenal, manager Claudio Ranieri has revealed.

The Englishman was a confirmed target for the Gunners but opted to reject a move to the Emirates in order to stay at the King Power Stadium.

He will again lead the Leicester City offensive department after signing a new four-year contract last month.

"Maybe it is because he started from the bottom and now we are his family," Ranieri said.

"It is the first time in the Champions League too and he wants to stay together. I am very happy.

"He enjoys it a lot here – he is a king and he is happy.

"Thank you to him and his family because it was important.

"He made a fantastic choice. I believe in the man.

"You imagine, he came from a little team and came right to the top, and then a big team wants you but you stay – that is unbelievable.

"It is fantastic because Jamie is one of our points of reference.

"Of course, all his team-mates are happy and he gave us a lot of energy to have another good season."
