Leicester City Launch Investigation Into Jamie Vardy's Racist Casino Video

'Racist Thai orgy'. 'Racist casino video'. It's fair to say Leicester city have not done a great job of instructing their players on the bare minimum required to be viewed as a decent human.

Obviously enough, you'd like to think that as grown men they wouldn't need to be thought that at this stage in life but, when it also affects what happens on the pitch, it appears that's exactly what's needed.

The 'racist orgy' was thought to be, at least partly, responsible for Nigel Pearson's departure from the club and now Claudio Ranieri has a new headache to deal with after England striker Jamie Vardy dragged the club in a fresh racism storm.


The Sun on Sunday yesterday released footage of Vardy abusing a fellow gambler in a casino whom he suspected of standing over him and looking at his cards during a game of poker.

The video shows Vardy approaching the individual and saying;

Jap. Yo Jap. Walk on. Walk on ... oi, walk on. Yeah you ... Jap. Walk on.

He was then held back by teammate Ritchie De Laet as the situation looked set to escalate.


Vardy has since released an apology for what he called a 'regrettable error in judgement' and Leicester, have been understandably quick to address the situation.

We expect the highest standards from our players on and off the pitch and for them to set an example as role models in our community.

We have noted Jamie's apology and will begin a process of investigation into the incident imminently. There will be no further comment until this process has concluded.
