Premier League: Vardy becomes oldest Golden Boot winner
Despite drawing a blank against Manchester United on the final day of the Premier League season, Leicester's Jamie Vardy still finished as 2019/20 top scorer.
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has become the Premier League's oldest Golden Boot winner at the age of 33 after finishing the 2019-20 season with 23 goals.
Vardy finishes one goal ahead of Aubameyang, Ings
Vardy fired a blank in Leicester's 2-0 loss against Manchester United on Sunday - a result that saw the Foxes miss out on a top-four finish - to make it three games without a goal to see out the season.
However, the ex-England international still finished a goal clear of Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings of Southampton at the top of the scoring charts.
