Jamie Vardy returned to the Leicester City starting lineup versus Southampton, and it only took him 21 seconds to score.

In the previous four Championship games, Enzo Maresca had started Kelechi Iheanacho and deployed the striker as a second-half substitute. Vardy was chosen to play against Southampton, but the Nigerian had only had a few days of training after returning from international duty.

He didn’t take long to make the necessary impact as City won 4-1 at St. Mary’s and he became the team’s first striker to score a league goal this year. Following his now-standard celebration after scoring away from home, he cupped his ears in front of the home supporters behind the goal.

He’ll be hoping to build on it when City plays Norwich at Carrow Road tonight (Wednesday).In regards to his celebrations, he told Sky Sports, “I personally think it’s part of football.”

It’s entertaining and a fun aspect of the game. You must accept everything because if your followers are giving you anything, you must give something in return.

Given that he joined the team in 2011, Vardy has experienced more than most. Following City’s relegation from the Premier League last season, the current chapter finds them back in the Championship, where they were when he joined. The striker acknowledges his feelings at the end of the season, but is determined to transform them into something positive.

I was completely devastated, he admitted. “I’m sorry for the owner, the supporters, and everyone at the club.

“The choice of the table is not made based on what others say. Accept that it’s true and that turning that around to place us in the other position is not the answer.

“This is one of the downs we need to turn into an up from; we’ve had a lot of ups and downs.”

Even if Vardy is no longer among the first names on the teamsheet like he was in earlier campaigns, he will play a significant role in that. The 36-year-old’s expertise in the group might be essential on and off the field.

He continued, “I’m always there to talk to the young ones; all that aspect is crucial. “What matters is how you behave around here, not what you say. Be a normal person to all. I won’t be a huge presence everywhere. I am who I am.
