A man who has featured heavily on the Balls.ie Fantasy Football Podcast so far this season is Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
On the podcast we've discussed how he works like someone who isn't sure whether or not he is about to be released, and that hunger has resulted in Vardy sitting atop the Premier League scoring charts ahead of the likes of Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku.
It's clear where that work ethic comes from, as he is someone who has climbed the football ladder from non-league football in England, to a likely member of England's Euro 2016 squad, and speaking to The Guardian ahead of the latest round of international fixtures, Vardy offered a very simple pleasure as the best thing about being a Premier League footballer:
The best thing about being a Premier League player is definitely not having to get up at seven in the morning. I don’t miss having to grab meals at motorway service stations either. When you are having to dash off after work to make sure you arrive on time for training you end up eating whatever fast food is on offer, just to get something inside you.
I'm pretty sure every one of us who has played for any sort of team has been in that position where you have to eat something, anything, before training or a match. It's good to know that at least one current Premier League player has been there too.
From fast foot in a service station to the Premier League, Jamie Vardy is living the dream.
