About this item
It was the 5000-1 bet. An impossible dream, or so everyone thought. But Leicester City really are Premier League champions, and Jamie Vardy has played a pivotal part in their historic win. Having spent most of his career in the Conference, playing for a Premier League team seemed improbable at best. However, since signing with Leicester City in 2012, Vardy and his team have experienced a meteoric rise. Leicester’s incredible feat has transcended ordinary sports coverage, and newspapers and sports channels around the world have devoted headlines to the team as the world’s media has descended onto the East Midlands. In the age of the "boy wonder" soccer player trained by an academy since childhood, Vardy’s story is truly refreshing and, thanks to his pivotal role in Premier League history, he has suddenly become one of the sport’s most recognized names. The book is completely up-to-date to include the moment Leicester City finally sealed the Premier League title, as a country rejoiced with them and the world watched in wonder.
