Vardy says he is no cheat

The Leicester City strike, however, rejects the idea that he is a cheat and said that "I am not acheat and I have never been. That's all I have to said about it."

"He is an international player, it is not necessary for him to do what he did. He did it quite well, I thought the English players were tougher than that. He got in my face, I did not strike him, but he he fell and they showed a yellow to the two of us."

Despite losing his cool, Nasri did not want to react to Vardy as he said "there are too many cameras and security" and says he didn't want to receive a hefty ban with next year's Champions League in his mind.
