Michael Owen's criticism Doesn’t Bother Me - Jamie Vardy

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy is not interested in what his critics say after bringing his scoring drought to a spectacular end. Vardy claimed a hat-trick in Saturday's 4-2 win over Manchester City at the King Power Stadium, scoring for the first time in 16 games, a spell during which he has had to endure plenty of criticism.
The England international, who scored 24 goals in Leicester's title winning run last season, was asked more specifically about some comments made by Michael Owen last month, when he said the 29-year-old relied more on luck and was not a natural goalscorer.

He said “I don't listen to that. He can say what he wants, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I'm not going to read anything to it and that's up to them what they say. I'll just get on with it, work on the training field and hopefully take it into the matches.”

Vardy is taking nothing for granted in terms of his own form coming back or making any guarantees that the champions will go on the kind of lengthy unbeaten run that saw them claim their shock 2015-16 title. He added “At the end of the day the team comes first. Although we've not been getting the results and a few of the performances have been below par, deep down we knew we were still the team we were last year. On Saturday's performance we've definitely got that back and we'll look forward to Tuesday now at Bournemouth. I don't think we can start talking about streaks and stuff like that just yet, but we'll have to wait and see. Obviously with what happened last year, a lot of expectations go up. Against City we showed exactly what we're about and what we can do.
