Leicester City football star Jamie Vardy said it has been “sickening” to learn of the details in football's child sex abuse scandal
London: Jamie Vardy said it has been “sickening” to learn of the details in football's child sex abuse scandal.
"It's sickening to know what's been going off and the ordeals the victims have been through and are still going through. It's not nice at all,” Vardy said.
“To be honest with you we're lucky that some have come out and spoken about it so we can get something done about it.”
Vardy also criticised former darts world champion Eric Bristow, who called footballers “wimps” in relation to the scandal.
Vardy said: “It's just a joke of a comment. It's disgusting, if you think it's that easy.
“You've seen the ordeals they've gone through, when they've spoken about it. It's not been easy to come out and speak about it and to say something like that, especially a person in his position, is beyond a joke.”
