Louis van Gaal compares Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to Dennis Bergkamp


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has likened Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp ahead of today's game at the King Power Stadium.

The Dutchman was full of praise for the 28-year-old who shares his 10-match scoring streak record in the Premier League with former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"He was already a very nasty player for us last year," Van Gaal said.

"He scores, he provoked a penalty, now scoring 10 goals in a row, he is a great player. I only know Dennis Bergkamp as a player who did the same with Ajax.

"It's not so easy to do that."

Asked if Leicester City could go on to win the league, van Gaal explained: "Normally these kind of clubs can compete for long time, then at the end it becomes more difficult.

"But in England because of the quality of the teams, because every team has the money to buy players - and they have bought players - the difference in the Premier League between the clubs is not so high."
