Alan Shearer Advises Leicester Striker Jamie Vardy to 'Stop Sulking' After Goalscoring Drought

Published on: 16 October 2016

Former England and Newcastle striker Alan Shearer has told Leicester's Jamie Vardy to 'stop sulking' following the 29-year-old's inability to score in his last eight games for club and country.

Vardy has scored just three goals for the Foxes so far this season, which, when compared to his nine goals at the same point last season is certainly a poor return.

And Shearer believes the striker's problems are down to his attitude, claiming that he isn't working as hard as he did last season.

Jamie is going through a goal drought and is not going to get out of it by sulking, because that is what he looks like he is doing at the minute,� Shearer was quoted as saying by The Sun.

He is not doing what he did last season and causing defenders enough problems. He is making it easy for them.

There is a lack of effort there. You have to work hard to get to the top, but you have to work even harder to stay there.�

Leicester fell to another defeat at the weekend, this time at the hand's of Claudio Ranieri's former club Chelsea, who were dominant in a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

The result leaves the title-holders in 13th after eight games having recorded just two wins all season.

Claudio Ranieri says Leicester have returned to normal this season after their extraordinary Premier League title.

It was an astonishing achievement by Leicester to win the title last season but what a contrast this season,� Shearer added.

There was a real energy about Claudio Ranieri's team when they won the Premier League, there is none now.

Yes they lost their main man in N'Golo Kante, but they did spend and nothing should have taken away their desire.

But they are showing none at the moment.�
