Who's my favourite football player and why?

At the moment, I would have to say Jamie Vardy, is hands down my favourite player. He plays for Leicester City and this season he's scored 24 goals, which is phenomenal.

Last year, Leicester were at the bottom of the table and narrowly missed relegation. This season they've finished top. Partly because of Jamie Vardy's scoring streak. The guy's been an absolute machine this year. And he's been a massive inspiration to myself. And it's been a true underdog story of watching a 'poor' team rise to the top of the table.
