A new season but it was the same old Jamie Vardy as the Leicester City forward kicked off the Foxes campaign by scoring the match-winning goal against Wolves.
It was a clever finish from the Englishman as he flicked the ball past Sa after Ricardo Pereira had fizzed a cross into the box from the right flank.
The celebration that followed the goal was even better as the 34-year-old charged toward the away Wolves fans at the King Power Stadium while howling at them.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the ultimate wind-up merchant’s tomfoolery against Wolves.
The King of epic trolling is back!

Return of crowds also means the return of Jamie Vardy celebrating by winding up opposition fans.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) August 14, 2021
Day one – howling at the Wolves supporters. Superb. pic.twitter.com/oYyTlnB5H7
A brilliant goal
That Vardy goal was spectacular today. Has no right to get to the ball first & when he does it’s coming so fast at him that he has to react in a split second & just angle his foot to turn it on goal. True strikers finish that.— The Beautiful Game (@BeautifulGameJS) August 14, 2021
Vardy does his homework
I swear vardy looks in advance who he’s playing and comes up with celebrations that rifle the fans 😂 https://t.co/HS5xneu4BW— CastagneSzn (@CastagneLCFC) August 14, 2021
When he did ‘the eagle’ against Crystal Palace
Jamie Vardy howling against Wolves and doing the eagle celebration against Crystal Palace (which are known as the eagles) confirmed to me that he is an absolute legend 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/ASQacLcdWu— Walid 🇵🇸 (@Walidbusquets) August 14, 2021
