Michael Owen believe that Jamie Vardy does not have the instincts of a good finisher. Owen was speaking after the goalless draw between Leicester city and FC Copenhagen.
“Even when he was scoring loads of goals last season he wasn’t convincing me as a natural finisher,” Owen said on BT Sport.
“But then again Alan Shearer used a lot of brute force and power. He was a different type – not everyone finishes the same way.
“Look at Ozil from the other night [his goal against Ludogorets]. He was so cool, calm and collected but others go for pure power.
“He’s the type of centre forward or type of finisher that is very much head down and hit it. He goes for power a lot. He’s not necessarily a real cute, classy type of finisher.
“He doesn’t once lift his head. He almost hits it through goalkeepers. To be a finisher like that you need a lot of luck – sometimes you’ll have it, sometimes you won’t.”
Vardy sets new Premier League record after scoring in 11 consecutive matches; he finished the season with 24 goals. His efforts were instrumental to Leicester City success last season.
