Leicester and England star Jamie Vardy set to become a reality TV guru for new football show

The 29-year-old striker, who helped the Foxes to win the Premier League, is to act in a documentary series as guru to 42 non-league players, Jamie Vardy’s Having An Academy.

Ex-Fleetwood Town player Jamie Vardy said: “I hope it encourages would-be footballers to keep on fighting like I did.”

Though being from a non-league, Vardy achieved a meteoric rise to stardom, as he lifted the Premier League trophy in just 6 years.

The Leicester forward found the back of the net 24 times this season and was once locked in a three-way battle for the Golden Boot too.

After Leicester lifted the title, the ex-Halifax striker revealed his desire to beat Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero to the race for the top goal scorer of the Premier League.

Vardy said: “We’ll have to wait and see what happens this week. If it happens it happens, if it doesn’t then it doesn’t. I’ve still had a great season.”

“I’d have been level if I’d not put that penalty [against Everton] in the garden!”.

Before moving up the ranks, Vardy played his trade for ‘Stocksbridge Park Steels’ as he was released from ‘Sheffield Wednesday’ as a teenager.

He also said: “I can still remember the day I was released from Sheffield Wednesday as a teenager because I was too small [4ft 11ins].”

“I don’t think anyone can be told if they’re good enough at 15 or 16 when you still have so many years to grow and develop. I had a growth spurt two months later so who knows what difference it would have made.”

“I doubted myself as soon as I got released. It was my boyhood club, I had made them the highlight of everything. To be told at that age I was not big enough or strong enough was hard to take.”
