While fans are still talking about Jamie Vardy’s goal celebration after he grabbed the late winner for Leicester City on Sunday, there seem to be an interesting story that followed on in the victory.
Goals from Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy helped the Foxes pip their host Sheffield United 2 – 1 to put them back in contention for the Premier League title.
Vardy’s goal in the 89th minute ended the Foxes four-game winless run and prolonged Sheffield United’s problems as Chris Wilder’s men are yet to taste victory in their last 11 matches.
The Foxes striker then celebrated in style, sliding into the LGBTQ corner flag and smashed it into many pieces, earning himself a booking in the process.
Reactions followed Vardy’s celebration as his Leicester City Nigerian team mates made the England international show his proficiency in the ‘Nigerian Pidgin’.
Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho started it all when he took to his twitter handle to congratulate his team mates for the hard earned victory over the blades.
Iheanacho reacting to the photo of his compatriot, [Wilfred Ndidi] staring at the destroyed LGBTQ corner flag, during the goal celebration, tweeted: “@ndidi25 Wilf what are you looking at”
@ndidi25 responded: “corner flag wey Vardy break lol”, translated in English as ‘The corner flag Vardy broke’.
@vardy7 in response, tweeted: “No be me do am” which translated in English would mean, ‘I didn’t do it’.
Ayoze Perez had gotten the first goal for the visitors in the 24th minute but Oli McBurnie replied straight away with a header two minutes later before Vardy sealed an injury time victory to hand Foxes a massive three point.
The Foxes are now 4th on the log with 21 points from 11 games and 3 points adrift of league leaders Tottenham.
