Jamie Vardy: I will not stop taking penalty kicks
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy insists he will remain the penalty taker of the team despite failing to score from the spot against Liverpool on Saturday (23/09/2017).
Jamie Vardy had the chance to bring his team an equalizer when the two sides met at King Power Stadium, Leicester.
However, Liverpool goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, can read the direction of a Vardy penalty kick and block his kick.
Leicester failed to equalize and Liverpool came home with a 3-2 win.
Not being able to conquer Mignolet did not make Vardy feel the need to retreat from the position of the penalty shooter.
“I will not stop taking penalties, I will continue to have the desire to score from the penalty spot,” said Vardy.
He was ready to take responsibility for failing to carry out his duties counter counter Liverpool.
“I am the one who volunteered to kick a penalty and failed, so that’s my responsibility.This failure is something I have to fix and make a lesson,” Vardy said.
As quoted from the site Transfermarkt, Vardy nine times took a penalty in the Premier League.
He seven times succeeded and twice failed, including the game counter Liverpool.
